This title was first published in 2001: Despite considerable expansion, the scholarly literature on political corruption has remained fragmentary, often polarized, consisting either of sweeping systematic statements, or case-specific examples. Perry bridges this gap and proves the need for further such study in this most worthwhile examination of the place of political corruption in Australia. The Australian experience is paid thorough, yet concise attention and then it is related to the concept of political corruption in its various and changing forms and interpretations. Assuming no familiarity with the central intellectual issues, Perry lucidly explores them in terms of their method, practice and definition with particular reference to Australia. Primarily suitable for academics interested in politics, geography, development studies, history and sociology, this book’s accessible style also makes it of interest to a general audience.

From the 1975 Loans Affair to the 1997 'travel rorts' controversy, over the past 25 years we have become accustomed to the political crises and personal dramas of scandals unfolding in the news. More than a dozen federal cabinet ministers have been forced to resign, and some disgraced state government ministers have even served time in prison. A few scandals have directly affected the fates of governments, many individual careers have been damaged, and at times the political agenda has been sharply changed. In this innovative book political scientist Rodney Tiffen uses case studies of Australia's major political scandals to show: why some issues become scandals but others don't; how scandals are brought to light; how politicians, parliament, the courts and the media interact as scandals unfold; what scandals tell us about our political culture.

Peter deLeon argues that while it is often individuals who actually engage in political corruption, it is the US political system that condones or encourages such actions. Once this perspective is recognised, one can begin to understand ways in which the costs of corruption might be alleviated.

Refugee Law in Australia is the first text to deal comprehensively with how the Australian Courts have interpreted the United Nations Convention concerning the Status of Refugees. The text presents a comprehensive legal analysis of the case law and the decision-making mechanisms for assessing applications for refugee status from the primary decision-making level to the High Court. Information about the applicable procedures is included as well as practical advice for case presentation at all these levels. Refugee status law is a politically sensitive subject and exposes Australia to international scrutiny. Refugee litigation comprises a substantial amount of the Federal Court2s caseload and refugee cases have set precedents that apply across all fields of administrative law. The text presents the complex legal issues in a lucid and thorough manner.
