"an exceptionally intelligent book which brings to subject of political institutions subtleties of interpretation which only sound scholarship allows." - Arthur Aughey, Parliamentary Affairs
"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." - Eoin OMalley, Political Studies Review
"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." - Ben Yong, UCL, Public Law Journal
