Years of Scandal: Commissions of Inqui/Peachment, All/Paper/1920694579/S055-D1
University of Western Australia Press
Ambitious in scope, incisive in its detail, this wide-ranging book brings fresh insights to a contentious and misunderstood area—the role in politics of royal and other commissions of inquiry.
Spanning an often tumultuous and bitter period in Western Australian public life from the late 1980s on, The Years of Scandal offers valuable perspectives on the procedural machinery of commissions. At the same time its nine specialist authors analyse key aspects of some strategic inquiries under review, whose diverse subject matter includes police corruption, financial scandals, medical improprieties, family violence, child abuse and local government imbroglios.
