Abstract

[Extract] In the last decade, the Greens consolidated as the electoral alternative to the left of the Australian Labor Party. Earlier, however, during the 'long Labor decade' of the Hawke and Keating governments, from 1983 to 1996, the varied efforts of thousands of people which went towards creating new parties culminated, after the Greens' formation at the start of the 1990s, in the party's relative stagnation for several years.
