Most widely held works by Raymond Miller. Democratic decline and democratic renewal : political change in Britain, Australia and New Zealand by Ian Marsh 13 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide "The story of liberal democracy over the last half century has been a triumphant one in many ways, with the number of democracies increasing from a minority of states to a significant majority. Yet substantial problems afflict democratic states, and while the number of democratic countries has expanded, democratic practice has contracted.
This book introduces a novel framework for evaluating the rise and decline of democratic governance. Examining three mature democratic countries - Britain, Australia and New Zealand - the authors discuss patterns of governance from the emergence of mass democracy at the outset of the twentieth century through to its present condition.
The shared political cultures and institutional arrangements of the three countries allow the authors to investigate comparatively the dynamics of political evolution and the possibilities for systemic developments and institutional change" But - from MMP to leadership primaries, spin doctors to 'dirty politics' - the country's political system is undergoing rapid change. Democracy in New Zealand provides an up-to-date and concise introduction to New Zealand politics and how it works.
Examining the constitution and the political system, cabinet and parliament, political parties, leadership and elections, Raymond Miller draws on data and analysis including from the election to tackle critical questions: Who runs New Zealand?
Does political apathy threaten democracy? Will new parties have an ongoing impact? Do we now have a presidential democracy?

Building citizen identities through mobilizing ideas and institutions, they make a powerful case for a new form of post-neoliberal representation that renews the democratic spirit. Toggle navigation.
