The Companion includes a compendium of factual information on key topics of Australian politics (eg. chronologies of political history; lists of Australian Prime ministers, results of referendums). Coverage is wide-ranging, including national Australian politics as well as Australian politics in regional, international and global contexts. The work gives attention to all levels of government within the Australian federal political system as well as local government and regional politics. It also takes full account of the colonial origins of Australian politics and includes entries on indigenous politics, frontier politics and settler societies.
