Restraining Elective Dictatorship
If Australians, Canadians, and Americans are - like the British - 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. Restraining Elective Dictatorship contains chapters from 21 leading international scholars and politicians on the history, the recent performance, and the future of upper houses of Parliament/Congress in Australia, Canada, the US, and the UK. The book examines bicameralism (two legislative or parliamentary chambers), the Australian Senate, the international scene, and politics in each Australian state including the unique example of Queensland.
