A major feature of the political development of Western democracies is the growth of indigenous, ethnic and national groups striving for political self-determination. This book analyses the institutional responses individual governments have made to these demands. Sub-State Nationalism provides a much needed categorization and genuinely comparative analysis of the political voice gained by sub-state national groups in multinational democratic communities. The book includes international case-studies drawn from Canada, New Zealand, Australia and the USA. It covers the empirical question of what voice these groups have, and how its institutions are structured, and the analytical question of how such knowledge contributes to our theoretical understanding of the politics of group rights and representation.

This book of essays celebrates Mark Aronson's contribution to administrative law. As joint author of the leading Australian text on judicial review of administrative action, Aronson's work is well-known to public lawyers throughout the common law world and this is reflected in the list of contributors from the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the UK. The introduction comes from Justice Michael Kirby of the High Court of Australia. The essays reflect Aronson's interests in judicial review, non-judicial grievance mechanisms, problems of proof and evidence, and the boundaries of public and private law. Amongst the contributors, Peter Cane, Elizabeth Fisher, and Linda Pearson write on administrative adjudication and decision-making, Anita Stuhmcke writes on Ombudsmen, and Robin Creyke and John McMillan, the Commonwealth Ombudsman, write on charters, codes and 'soft law'. There are evaluations of the profound influence of human rights law on judicial review from the UK by Sir Jack Beatson and Thomas Poole and from Canada by David Mullan. Matthew Groves and Chief Justice James Spigelman address developing themes in judicial review, while Carol Harlow, Richard Rawlings, Michael Taggart and Janet McLean follow Aronson's interests into the private side of public law. An American perspective is added by Alfred Aman and Jack Beermann.
"An alphabetical exploration of the people, geography, animals, plants, history, and culture of Australia."
William Brown escaped from slavery as a child. Brown was still considered a slave at the time of this novel's publication. Brown was a pioneer in several different literary genres, including travel and fiction. Clotel or the President's Daughter has been considered the first African-American novel. It was published in London in 1853. Brown hoped that his work would influence the British to help with the abolitionist movement in the United States. Four versions of Clotel, published between 1853 and 1867 include Clotel; or the President's Daughter: a Narrative of Slave Life in the United States, London, Partridge & Oakey, 1953; Miralda; or, The Beautiful Quadroon. A Romance of American Slavery, Founded on Fact, In Sixteen Installments, New York. Weekly Anglo African, December 1, 1860 to March 16, 1861; Clotelle: A Tale of the Southern States, Boston: J. Redpath, 1864; Clotelle; or The Colored Heroine, A Tale of the Southern States, Boston: Lee & Shepard, 1867
