The Constitution of New South Wales provides for the first time a detailed analysis of all the provisions of the Constitution Act 1902 (NSW), including their legislative history and examples of their use. It covers the constitution, operation and interaction of the State legislature, executive and judiciary, as well as the relationship between the State and the Commonwealth in the federal system.Most importantly, it deals with all the issues necessary to determine the validity of State laws, including: the legislative power of the State Parliament; limitations on legislative power derived from different sources including express and implied limitations in the Commonwealth Constitution; the effectiveness of State manner and form constraints and the consequences of their breach; legislative procedure; and the technical rules concerning the passage of taxation and appropriation bills.Whilst the book uses the Constitution Act 1902 (NSW) as its focus, it addresses constitutional issues arising in all Australian States, such as parliamentary privilege, electoral law and disputes about the qualification and disqualification of Members of Parliament, money bills and parliamentary procedure. It deals with these issues from a State perspective, raising important distinctions that are not addressed in texts on Commonwealth constitutional law.The Constitution of New South Wales places the constitutional framework of the State in its historical and political context. Using previously unpublished government material, it provides a fundamental reassessment of the relationship between the States, the Commonwealth and the United Kingdom, and the first detailed analysis of the negotiation and application of the Australia Acts 1986, which now form a significant part of State constitutions. It explains how the Parliament, the Executive Council and the Cabinet operate in practice, rather than theory, and gives practical examples to illustrate the operation of constitutional provisions.This, the first and only comprehensive analysis of the New South Wales Constitution, is an essential addition to all legal, government and university libraries. A NSW Sesquicentenary of Responsible Government publication.

A History of Criminal Law in New South Wales

New South Wales is that rare political creation, a state founded for and upon the criminal law. The history of its criminal law from settlement to Federation is uniquely fascinating. Drawing on his range of experience as a university scholar, a criminal law QC and a judge, the author explains how Britain's criminal laws were established and developed in its (arguably) most successful colony. There are three themes:the horror and savagery of the criminal law transported to Australia and imposed there; the constitutional importance of basic criminal law rules requiring certainty of proof; the corrupt but necessary role of mercy in the administration of the law. There are several genuinely remarkable features of this book. One is that the author draws upon a vast body of material recently brought to light by Bruce Kercher in his massive disinterment of early colonial case law, to explain in detail the actual working of the New South Wales criminal courts.Another is that the core of the book is an analysis of New South Wales parliamentary debates between 1871 and 1883 on criminal law, illuminating the history of the law (and its future). Yet the most remarkable thing of all about this book is its rarity. In the many places where the British Empire imposed its laws, there are hundreds of universities and centres of legal study.Histories of the criminal law, or studies which can be so described, are rare or invisible. This admirable study will become a classic in its field, required reading by legal scholars, historians of colony and empire, and by astute legal practitioners making arguments for contemporary submissions or judgments.

" Railways have played an immense part in the history of New South Wales. The parallel lines extended as the population grew and themselves made possible new settlement and new industries. Railways crossed the mountain barriers that surround Sydney and opened up both the vast hinterland and the northern and southern coasts. Railways joined every part of New South Wales to Sydney in a distinctive, centralized pattern. They also joined New South Wales to the neighbouring colonies and states. "

This first edition of New South Wales Legislative Council Practice brings together the history, practice and procedure of the New South Wales Legislative Council - the Upper House of the New South Wales Parliament, and the first and oldest legislative body in Australia.Since the advent of responsible government in New South Wales in 1856, the New South Wales Legislative Council has been the focus of continuous struggle regarding its composition, powers, role and very existence. However, from its tumultuous history, the Council has in recent years emerged as a democratically elected, powerful and effective upper house, in many ways mirroring the development of the Australian Senate. Today the Council performs key functions within the New South Wales system of government including representing the people and scrutinising the executive government as a 'House of Review'.The rich history of the New South Wales Legislative Council has brought with it a wealth of parliamentary precedent with which to guide modern practice and procedures in the House. While practitioners of parliamentary law and practice in New South Wales have long had access to authorities such as Erskine May's Parliamentary Practice and Odgers' Australian Senate Practice, the publication of New South Wales Legislative Council Practice will provide an essential reference book to understanding parliamentary privilege, practice and procedure in the New South Wales Upper House.
