This book explores how governmental elites understand the Westminster systems of Australia, Britain, Canada, New Zealand, and South Africa. It concludes that Westminster is a flexible family of ideas that is useful for many purposes and survives and, even thrives, because of its varied uses to elite actors.

Arthur Aughey, Parliamentary Affairs an exceptionally intelligent book which brings to subject of political institutions subtleties of interpretation which only sound scholarship allows.

Eoin OMalley, Political Studies Review full of interesting insights and stories, and is rich in detail of the operation of the political system in the chosen countries. The way in which politicians appeal to the term Westminster is revealing.

Ben Yong, UCL, Public Law Journal Rhodes, Wanna and Weller...are interested in taking a new approach to the comparative study of a well-known family of political systems, which breaks from previous staid approaches. In doing so, the authors have at the very least provided an up to date discussion of how Westminster core executives currently operate, and succeeded in making Westminster interested again.
