Australian studies : a survey by James Walter( Book )

12 editions published between 1989 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The systematic study of Australian culture and society has been relatively short-term. In this book, attention to the specifics of Australian society is eleborated into general discussions of culture and cultural production that are the fundamental concerns of the numanitites and social sciences. In a series of linked interpretative essays, the book surveys central questions in history, politics, literary and media studies, social history, political economy, gender studies, race relations and cultural studies. It is designed to introduce key issues of current debate, and to provide guides to sources and resources, in each of these areas. It will provide a stimulus and resource in Australian studies to researchers, teachers, students and interested readers generally. The book has been produced by a group of university teachers from disparate discuplinary backgrounds whose common interest is in research into and teaching about Australian culture and society

What were they thinking? : the politics of ideas in Australia by James Walter( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ideas are at the heart of our politics. They are the means by which people are influenced and mobilised. Australian politics have been shaped by distinctive patterns of political thought from the colonial period to the Rudd government. But how have these patterns arisen? And what have been their effects on shaping what we think is politically possible or desirable? This book is not a survey of theory but an invigorating history of people trying to make sense of their world, fighting to establish the principles governing the way politics is pursued and justifying their own perspectives. What We

Understanding prime-ministerial performance : comparative perspectives by Paul Strangio( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the beginning of the twenty-first century prime ministers loom larger in the consciousness of their nations than perhaps in any previous era. But how well do we really understand the variables of prime-ministerial performance, and, specifically, why some prime ministers apparently flourish in the role while others wither? This study examines how prime ministers perform as leaders of their governments, parties, and nations. It offers new ways of thinking about prime-ministerial power and leadership, and systematic empirical studies of prime-ministerial leadership practices in four Westminster democracies: the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. The volume features contributions from leading political scientists from all of these countries and is organised into three major sections: understanding power in prime-ministerial performance, prime ministers and their parties, and evaluating prime-ministerial performance. Through its collaborative and multifaceted approach the volume demonstrates that there are no hard and fast propositions or rules of thumb to capture what it is that makes us think of some prime ministers as so much more effective than others

In this reappraisal of recent Australian political life, Paul Strangio and James Walter analyse the performances of five prime ministers (Whitlam, Fraser, Hawke, Keating and Howard) against the background of changes in the political system over the past three decades and assess the leadership style of a potential prime minister, Kevin Rudd. The authors argue that good democratic leadership requires robust institutions, including a fearless public service, a strong Opposition and alternative policy advice
