The Fourth Labour Government: Politics and Policy in New Zealand
Jonathan Boston, Martin Holland
Oxford University Press, 1990 - New Zealand - 296 pages
The fourth Labour Government ranks as one of New Zealand's great reforming governments. It has transformed the management of the economy and has brought radical changes in many areas of public policy. This second edition of The Fourth Labour Government has been updated to account for the major changes in direction shown by this innovative governing body in its second term in office. Part I addresses the electorate, the party system, and public policy. Part II examines policy reform in the state sector, education, health system, local government, and changes in fiscal policy and economic management.
