Westminster Tradition and Australia, the Parliamentary Democratic System inherited from Britain (C.)
Paperback - Author: Marchant, Leslie R. Publisher: Hesperian Press This book is essential reading for all Australians who now regularly face proposals for constitutional change, and is useful for those who live in other British dominions. For it provides a ready guide to the "Westminster System of Government" which grew over centuries, unplanned like Topsy, which Britain uses and the dominions inherited. The book is presented like a course that one can attend throughout, or walk into and out of as time suits. Each chapter therefore stands by itself. This means that some information is duplicated. This was deliberately done for the convenience of readers who will not have to break off their reading to look up parts of other chapters to get information about the chapter they are reading.
