Publisher: Australian Academic Press

Binding: Paperback

Book Condition: New

Book Type: Paperback


Paperback. 444 pages. Dimensions: 9.5in. x 6.7in. x 1.0in.This is a book on politics, history and legal philosophy like no other. Featuring an introduction by the late Sir Walter Campbell AC QC, former Governor and Chief Justice of Queensland, it argues that the republican ideal of government . . . of the people, by the people, for the people has permanently parted company from the republican form of government. A monarchist, not a royalist, the author argues that the important aspects of the monarchy are not the sentimental or tabloid details, but the constitutional role that has evolved within parliamentary democracy over centuries, in Britain and the rest of the Commonwealth. The book advocates the importance of the Crown in the Westminster parliamentary system of democracy, to limit executive power and help preserve peaceful, culturally diverse societies in Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada and New Zealand. Contrasts are presented between the legal safeguards inherent in the Westminster system with the failures of governance in the United States and France. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781875378289
