Political Parties in Transition? reviews the recent developments affecting the major parties and the party system in Australia, and asks the question: are Australia’s major parties acting like a cartel? The book includes detailed coverage about the evolution of the Australian Labor Party and the Liberal-National Party Coalition as well as the role of emergent parties such as the Greens. Consideration is given to whether these emergent parties have the capacity or indeed the opportunity to challenge major party dominance. The book also examines the evidence for and against the idea that the major parties have colluded to maintain their dominance of the system. The authors consider whether recent policy and other changes affecting party resources and party positioning, have helped advantage the major parties. For example, cases where public funding disproportionately favours incumbents, or when elites of both major parties agree about policy fundamentals and thereby limit political choice. With a depth of analysis suitable for postgraduate and undergraduate levels, Political Parties in Transition? is essential reading for students of political science and Australian studies, or anyone interested in Australian politics today. Contributors include the following leading academics: Murray Goot, Gary Johns, Dean Jaensch, Raymond Miller, Ian Marsh, John O’Mahony, Rodney Smith, Nick Turnbull, Adriadne Vromen, and John Warhurst.

This handbook completes Emeritus Professor Colin Hughes' major reference work on Australian government and politics in the 20th century. It is a sequel to three earlier volumes published in 1968, 1977 and 1986, which have become standard research tools for Australian historians and political scientists. It details, firstly, all members of all Australian ministries, cabinets and portfolios, with dates and notes, and secondly, voting information (both upper and lower houses of Parliament) for all general elections, Commonwealth, State and Territory, held between 1985 and 1999. It thus gathers together in the one book information which is otherwise scattered through a number of official publications, some not widely available. This consolidation and annotation follows the format established in the three earlier volumes and will join them as an indispensable reference work. A NSW Sesquicentenary of Responsible Government publication.
