Elections, Parties and Money in Australia

Democracy, in all its flaws, passions and intricacies, is the foundation of government. The law on it shapes our experience of electoral democracy. The very question of ‘who’ sets that law is contentious. Should it be set by courts via a constitution, or be the work of partisan but accountable legislators? The Law of Politics is the definitive account of this area. It chronicles and critiques the rules, cases and institutions at play. From voting rights to the framework for free and fair elections and referendums, and from political parties to restraints on money in politics.
Fully revised, this second edition encompasses major developments in the qualifications of members of parliament, voting systems, campaigning and political finance. It also includes a new chapter on local government. Throughout, the law is canvassed in light of the aspirations of liberty, equality, integrity and deliberation, as well as the realities of practical politics.
