Small parties in Australian politics from 1950 to 1990

Crow, Ruth (1991) Small parties in Australian politics from 1950 to 1990. unpublished. (Unpublished)


For about one hundred years Australian politics has been dominated by a "two party system" but there are signs that this may change in the future. It is therefore useful to look at the role of the smaller parties over the past four decades. This essay is confined to a study of State politics in Victoria, but similar situations exist in other States and in the Federal sphere.
