The analysis in this book takes up the possibilities inherent in the new institutionalism to apply social theory. It applies a traditional structural functionalist perspective to develop role types that describe parliamentary action, and then validates those role types empirically. This is the first time that structuration theory has been explicitly applied to any parliament, and the first time social analysis has been used to understand the conduct of the Australian houses of parliament.
