Socio-economic change and party survival

Botterill, Linda Courtenay and Cockfield, Geoff (2009) Socio-economic change and party survival. In: The National Party: prospects for the great survivors. Allen & Unwin, Sydney, Australia, pp. 1-9. ISBN 978-1-74327-025-5

Abstract

An introduction to the forces shaping Australian rural politics post-1986. After a decade of declining votes and marginalisation within the Coalition, the future of National Party is uncertain. Will its insistence on its agrarian identity lead to its demise, will it amalgamate with federal and state Liberal parties across the country, or will it continue to be the great survivor of Australian politics?
