Description
"This book provides a comprehensive analysis of the 2016 Australian federal election. Won by the Liberal-National Coalition by the slimmest of margins, the result created a climate of political uncertainty that threatened the government's lower house majority. While the campaign might have lacked the theatre of previous elections, it provides significant insights into the contemporary political and policy challenges facing Australian democracy and society today. In this, the 16th edited collection of Australian election studies, 41 contributors from a range of disciplines bring an unprecedented depth of expertise to the 2016 contest. The book covers the context, key battles and issues in the campaign, and reports and analyses the results in detail.
