The Craft of Governing The contribution of Patrick Weller to Australian political science
1 Aug 2014
Allen & Unwin
How government works is the central question of political science, and the focus of this collection of essays about the key aspects of government in Australia.
'Bargaining and puzzling; power and thought; dealing and agonising; compromise and commitment. These are two sides of political practitioners whether politician, public servant or campaigner. Understand the interplay and we can, just sometimes, make sense of the real world we seek to interpret.'
Patrick Weller's observation comes from half a century of contemplating politics in action. The question of how government works lies at the heart of political science, and it has also been the career focus of this pioneer in the field.
