Description : This edited collection provides a timely assessment of New Zealand politics in the aftermath of the 1996 election, the first under a proportional electoral system. As well as offering an early analysis of the results of the election, the book explains how electoral reform will impact on the various aspects of the political system. Part One looks at coalition and single party government, together with the likely effects of change on the party system and the role and functions of the Governor-General, parliament, cabinet, and the bureaucracy. Part Two examines the impact of change on public policy-making, including health, welfare, foreign policy and the environment. There are also readings on Maori politics, conflicting theories of state, the role of the media, and inequality and power. New Zealand Politics in Transition is aimed mainly at university and polytechnic students enrolled in courses in New Zealand politics, as well as those undertaking advanced work in law, publicpolicy, media studies and commerce.
