Book description

What are the key legal and constitutional issues that would arise if Australia attempted to switch from a constitutional monarchy to a republic? Stephen Gageler writes on the limits of section 128; Anne Twomey on One In All can a Commonwealth referendum to create a republic also convert State constitutions to a republican form; Sarah Murray examines the Winterton minimalist approach, Cheryl Saunders the Direct Election model; Peter Johnston investigates whether republican States can exist in a federal monarchy and Janine Pritchard the reverse monarchical States in a federal republic; Alan Fenna explores the political science considerations and Jim Thomson the problems posed for drafters. Chief Justice French dedicates the book to the late George Winterton, Chief Justice Martin introduces it and Greg Craven wraps it all up with characteristic aplomb.
