'The Australian Electoral System has many strengths, chief among them being the authors' ability to combine detailed analysis of Australia's varied

electoral experience with the broader issues raised by the international literature on elections and electoral behaviour. This publication makes a

major contribution to the study of electoral politics and to Australian

political science.'

G. CAMPBELL SHARMAN, DEPARTMENT OF POLITICAL SCIENCE, UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA, VANCOUVER


'The Australian Electoral System is an outstanding exploration of the range of electoral systems employed in Australia. It benefits greatly from being

informed by the broader comparative electoral systems literature - and it is a book that all those interested in electoral systems generally will want to read.'

MICHAEL GALLAGHER, DEPARTMENT OF POLITICAL SCIENCE, TRINITY COLLEGE, DUBLIN
