Party Politics in New Zealand by Raymond Miller

In light of the recent history of political reform in New Zealand, it is imperative that the role and influence of parties and the party system be rigorously reassessed. In Party Politics, Raymond Miller thematically investigates a number of issues that have long concerned scholars, dividing chapters by topic, rather than by party, making the book appealing to students.
