The titles explain the rights, responsibilities and privileges of individuals in each social position, and the relationships that exist between the Prime Minister, the Governor-General, Members of Parliament and private citizens. An excellent resource for civic studies, the series provides a comprehensive introduction to the law-making process, and insight into how the government and wider Australian society function.
