The Australian Constitution was a pragmatic arrangement designed to protect the member states, which surrendered sufficient power to establish a new federal government. It combines the British model of conventions to moderate governmental power with USA written federal system. This book traces the history of Australian constitutional arrangements. It pays special attention to the role of the judiciary who have used the common law to shape the power relationships between the States and the Commonwealth and to recognise "implied rights". It has a useful glossary of English legal terms.
