About the Authors
  • The High Court is taking an increasingly important role in shaping the contours of democracy in Australia. In deciding fundamental democratic questions, does the Court pursue a consistent and overarching democratic vision? Or are its decisions essentially constrained by institutional and practical limitations? Judging Democracy addresses this question by examining the Court's recent decisions on human rights, citizenship, native title and separation of powers. It represents the first major political and legal examination of the Court's new jurisprudence and the way it is influencing democracy and the institutions of governance in Australia.A foreword to the book has been written by the former Chief Justice of the High Court, Sir Anthony Mason.

    • First and only political assesment of Australia's highest court.
    • Compares with other Western democracies and their struggles to keep the judiciary independent of legislature and executive.
