Remembering agrarian collectivism

Cockfield, Geoff (2009) Remembering agrarian collectivism. In: The National Party: prospects for the great survivors. Allen & Unwin, Sydney, Australia, pp. 116-136. ISBN 978-1-74327-025-5


An analysis of the changes to the political economy of agriculture and their impact on 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?
