150 Years Of Spring Street — Victorian Government: 1850s to 21st Century

By Robert Murray

Parliamentary Government in Victoria is now more than a century and a half old. It is a story of high and low lights, idealistic dedication and self-serving manipulation, with many colourful figures – but over the decades the development of a great tradition of democratic service to a demanding public with high expectations. In 150 Years of Spring Street – a History of Victorian Government, author Robert Murray concisely describes the birth in the 1850s of democratic, independent government and its progress over fifteen decades.
