The Australian Party System
The Australian Party System
By Louise Overacker
Yale University Press (for Wellesley College), 1952, 373 pp

A welcome monograph on the development, operations and effect of a party system characterized, unlike that of the United States, by tight party discipline. Special attention is paid to the Australian Labor Party, which is even older than the British Labor Party. The author teaches political science at Wellesley College.
