Book review

In Australian politics, minor parties have come a long way. From an era where there were no minor parties in the national parliament, they have become crucial players in shaping government policy and the political debate. This book charts the rise of minor parties in the Australian Senate since the end of World War II, and it constructs an analytical framework to explain how these parties became the powerful actors they are today. The book shows that there has been a change in the type of minor party elected. Rather than being created as a result of a split in a major party, newer minor parties have been mobilized by broad social movements with the aim of advancing specific policy agendas. By shedding light on these parties, the book shows how minor parties have impacted the Australian political system and how they look set to remain an important component of governance in the future. *** Librarians: ebook available on ProQuest and EBSCO (Series: Politics) [Subject: Politics, History, Australian Studies]
