New Zealand is one of the world’s oldest democracies for men and women, Maori and Pakeha, with one of the highest political participation rates. But—from MMP to leadership primaries, spin doctors to “dirty politics”—the country’s political system is undergoing rapid change. Examining the constitution and the political system, cabinet and parliament, political parties, leadership, and elections, Raymond Miller draws on data and analysis (including from the 2014 election) to tackle critical questions: Who runs New Zealand? Does political apathy threaten democracy? Will new parties have an ongoing impact? Do we now have a presidential democracy?
