Parliament, the Executive and the Governor-General: A Constitutional Analysis
This book on federal executive power in Australia examines what the Commonwealth government can do withour legislative authorization, and considers in detail the constitutional relationships between the Queen and the Governor-General, the Governor-General and the Ministry, and the Parliament and the Executive, and the extent to which the Executive is independent of legislative control. It discusses the nature of the prerogative, and examines the extent to which the courts can review governmental action based upon constituionally conferred power, including an analysis of judicial review of the exercise of prerogative powers, and of the 'reserve powers' of the Crown. The book ends with a review of the role of the Governor-General's 'reserve powers' and of what might be done to prevent a recurrence of the constitutional crisis of 1975.
