Oxford Companion to Australian Politics by Brian Galligan

Book Description

The Oxford Companion to Australian Politics is the first scholarly and comprehensive account of Australian Politics, covering all aspects of Australian political life and thought in over 400 specially commissioned entries. Individual entries vary in length, from longer interpretive essays of 4,000 words commissioned from acknowledged experts in particular fields - of the kind used in The Oxford Companion to Politics of the World - to shorter, more factual entries. Coverage is comprehensive, 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.
