The Constitutions Of The Australian States

Picture of The Constitutions Of The Australian States
In this fifth edition of the popular Constitutions of the Australian States, Lumb provides an historical outline of the constitutions of the states and explains in detail the more important features of the constitutions in their present form: the structure of the legislature, responsible government and law-making power. Lumb analyses the effect of the legislation and of recent judicial decisions on the nature of the power of the state parliaments to make laws for the "peace, welfare and good government" of the people and territories under their jurisdiction.
