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.

The Australian Greens played a pivotal role after the 2010 federal election. It ensured the Gillard minority government went full term and won its first House of Representatives seat. But what do we really know about the Greens in Australia? Is the party really just an extension of the environment movement or a professional party, capable of influencing the major parties? This book examines the people who make the party tick. Uncovers the members and activists of the party. The Australian Greens: From Activism to Australia's Third Party asks whether the Greens has made the transition from a home for tree-huggers and alternative lifestylers to a party ready to work in Government.

Agriculture remains an important industry to both developed and developing economies. Unfortunately, many developing countries are still suffering from a lack of agricultural growth, especially those in Africa and South Asia. Australia's agricultural system has developed from almost non-existence 220 years ago to one of the most advanced and efficient in today's world. It is also one of the least distorted, receiving little government assistance. This book provides an updated and comprehensive account of a successful agricultural story, which can stimulate policy makers, researchers, agribusiness consultants and students to relate the Australian experience to their own agricultural development.
