A rural party in an urban nation

Cockfield, Geoff (2009) A rural party in an urban nation. In: The National Party: prospects for the great survivors. Allen & Unwin, Sydney, Australia, pp. 42-66. ISBN 978-1-74327-025-5

Abstract

An overview of trends in demography and voting that have affected the National Party. 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?
