The Australian system of government is now over a century old. The country has changed out of all recognition; does the structure of government need to change also? The book provides accessible accounts of current debate on three key issues: regionalism, republicanism and reform of the nation-state. Leading commentators from across the political spectrum ask the fundamental questions: what do Australians want and need from their system of government and what role will structural reform play in delivering this vision in the 21st century?
