The Australian Political System in Action blends practical (detailed examination of politics institutions) with theoretical (explanations of theory and its application). It does this by sectioning each chapter into two parts. The first provides a comprehensive overview of the political institution under examination (form, function and nature), using plenty of real-world of examples and discussion of comparative political systems to interest students. Part two investigates a contemporary issue relevant to the particular institution, again using lots of examples. This section links the practical elements to the broader theoretical framework and encourages students to delve deeper into the topics and the issues and debates that surround them.
