            Ministerial Advisers in Australia: The Modern Legal Context
             

            Ministerial Advisers in Australia: The Modern Legal Context (EPUB ebook – 1st edition)

            By Ng, Yee-Fui

            From their origins in the shadows of Australian public administration, ministerial advisers have been increasingly thrust into the limelight through scandals that appear on the front page of the newspapers. This book traces the rise in the power and significance of Australian min...isterial advisers. It shows the fundamental shift of the locus of power from the neutral public service to highly political and partisan ministerial advisers. The book demonstrates that the introduction of ministerial advisers into the structure of the Executive has led to the erosion of the Australian system of responsible government. This is caused by a failure in the political, legal and managerial accountability frameworks surrounding ministerial advisers. Ministerial Advisers in Australia is the first comprehensive study of the legal and political regulation of Australian ministerial advisers. This book features material from original interviews with Australian Ministers and Members of Parliament, as well as several former State Premiers.

            Protest and Power: The Battle for the Labour Party
             

            Protest and Power: The Battle for the Labour Party (EPUB ebook)

            By Kogan, David

            'A meticulously researched and balanced history' The Times 'Highly-readable and well-researched' The Sunday Times 'Faultless account of the twists and turns undertaken by the hard left of the Labour Party to retain relevance and the hope of power' James O'Brien, TLS 'A very good ...book, probably the most even-handed of all the accounts of Corbyn's rise to power' Guardian 'Timely new book about Labour' Independent The battle for the Labour party is dramatic and intense. This is its definitive history. Labour has shifted from the New Left, to New Labour, to Corbynista Labour. Now, it may see power again with a most unlikely group of activists from the 1970s becoming the fourth generation to win power since 1945. Only Clement Attlee, Harold Wilson and Tony Blair have won power from a sitting Conservative government. Of the ten general elections since 1979, Labour has won three, all under Blair. This record of failure, if applied to any other walk of life, would raise the fundamental question of why continue to fight a losing battle? For Labour, it asks whether it is a party of protest - designed only to be a voice from opposition, commenting on the flaws and falsities of Conservative police - or a party of power? Including exclusive interviews with key party members from the 1970s to today including Neil Kinnock, Tony Blair, Ed Miliband and Jon Lansman; and the party's recent struggles with antisemitism and Brexit, this book chronicles the conflicts within the Labour party, the schisms between ideologues and pragmatists, and how these fissures seem destined to keep Labour in opposition.
