Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This book looks at the campaign for the 1999 election, how people voted and why, and the formation of the minority centre-left coalition. It highlights key election issues and the leadership contest between Jenny Shipley and Helen Clark, as well as the referenda on the size of Parliament and on the justice system.

Based on the post-election conference held at Victoria University and sponsored by the New Zealand Politics Research Group and the New Zealand Political Change Project.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 299-304) and index.
