A Dictionary of Australian Politics Paperback – 1 February 2010
'The sheer complexity of modern government means that many citizens are uneasy about concepts that political insiders and journalists take for granted. A Dictionary of Australian Politics is a valuable guide to clearing a path through the jungle.' - Barry Jones
From barbecue-stopper' to 'washminster', from 'chardonnay socialist' to 'xenophobia', A Dictionary of Australian Politics is a comprehensive and lively guide to Australian political language. With handy 'quick grab' definitions, it is supported by in-depth explanations of the history and usage of important terms.
For anyone interested in politics, this is an authoritative and entertaining reference. It is uniquely Australian, bringing together a range of political terms and expressions that over time have entered the vernacular. It also includes international terms which are essential to political discussion.
