Consistently with the objectives of the series, the book returns to the Australians’ constitutional system in a way that explains its form and functioning, presents a critical assessment of it and conveys a contemporary sense of national debate.The chapters deal with the foundations of Australian constitutionalism, its history since the days of European colonization, the nature of the Australian Constitutions, the framework for judicial, legislative, executive and judicial review of government, federalism and multi-level government, and the protection of human rights.Running through all chapters is the story of the progressive evolution of Australian constitutionalism in the lean, but almost immutable framework of the formal, written procedure of the National Constitution.A second theme of traces of how the present, distinctive, constitutional arrangements in Australia emerged from the creative tension between the British and American constitutional traditions on which the Australian Constitution created and continues to manifest itself in various ways.One of these, which is likely to be of particular interest, is Australian’s confidence in institutional arrangements for the protection of human rights.The book is written in a clear and accessible style for readers in both Australia and countries around the world.Each chapter is followed by additional references to allow for specific questions to be pursued by readers seeking to do so.Australia’s Constitution” has already been cited in a High Court of Australia case: Momcilovic v The Queen, HCA 34 (September 8,2011)
