A Federal Legislature: The Australian Commonwealth Parliament 1901-1980
This is an in-depth study of the 1,033 members of the Commonwealth Parliament from 1901 to 1980. The book shows the domination of the parliament by state and party divisions, tracing the shifting strength and realignment of political groups in the House of Representatives and the Senate against any changes in the methods of election. Rydon reveals not only changes in Australian politics during the 1900s, but also the changing nature of parliament members within the highly disciplined, sometimes tyrannical, domain of Australian parliamentary parties.
