New Zealand Government and Politics is the principal guide to the political context, institutions and processes of government in New Zealand.

Maintaining its comprehensive overview of the core political concepts, key institutions and processes, the latest edition of this established and highly respected text now includes fresh perspectives on New Zealand politics (with a number of new chapter contributors), and additional learning features to engage students. Coverage and analysis of the 2008 election is integrated throughout.

"New Zealand Government and Politics is the leading undergraduate textbook for students of New Zealand political science. This third edition, featuring seven new chapters, includes a review of the major political events of the period 1990-2003, including analyses of the 2002 election campaign and results, the formation of the new Labour-led government, the parliamentary review of proportional representation, and recent changes to the party system."--BOOK JACKET.
