Studies In Australian Politics: The 1926 Referendum

Wildavsky, Aaron. Studies in Australian Politics. Melbourne: F.W. Cheshire, 1958.

“Though primarily a study of the extent to which the interests of particular groups may cut across party lines in Australian politics, this book contains a great deal that concerns industrial relations. The untidiness of a system of industrial regulation under which power is distributed between various Commonwealth and State authorities presents a perennial problems to those who desire greater uniformity in industrial regulation and who deplore the frictions and problems which sometimes arise from lack of it, as when the Commonwealth and a State have different basic wages or when a particular State introduces an innovation such as long-service leave.”
