The Dunstan Decade: Social Democracy at the State Level

Andrew Parkin (Editor), Allan Patience (Editor)

    Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


    When this volume was conceived, the Dunstan era in South Australian politics seemed to be heading - or was it drifting? - inexorably into the 1980s. It was an era which, even while it continued, could be identified as a truly distinctive and controversial period in South Australian, and in Australian, history. As such, it merited careful examination and analysis with particular reference to the policy issues to which the Dunstan governments gave so much emphasis. We were reassured, before embarking on the project, by the apparent stability of the regime, even as journalists and biographers were rapidly publishing works of varying taste and quality.
