Abstract

If Australians, Canadians and Americans are, like Britons, living under ‘elective dictatorships’ then how can their elected, single-party ‘government machines’ be kept in check? That is the key question examined in this book.
Contains chapters from twenty-one leading international scholars and politicians on the history, the recent performance, and the future of upper houses of parliament in Australia, Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Overviews bicameralism, the Australian Senate, the international scene and politics in each state including the unique example of Queensland. With a foreword by the Hon Bill Hayden, AC.
