New Publication: Democratic Decline and Democratic Renewal

A new book by the AIRC's Professor Ian Marsh (with Raymond Miller) has been published by Cambridge University Press. 

Democratic Delcine and Democratic Renewal: Political Change in Britain, Australia and New Zealand explores liberal democracy over the last half century.  The authors note that, while the number of democratic countries has expanded, democratic practice has contracted.  The authors examine three democratic countries - Britain, Australia and New Zealand - comparing their shared political cultures and institutional arrangments, the dynamics of political evolution, and the possibilities for systemic developments and institutional change.
