During 1968 a massive reshuffling of electoral boundaries took place, the first for thirteen years. The redistribution reflects the changes in population that have occurred in those years: in the New Parliament to be elected in 1969 New South Wales has one seat less and South Australia and Victoria each one more; new seats have been created and old ones abolished; only five constituencies remain unchanged. Past electoral figures are thus unreliable, a deficiency this work overcomes by adjusting previous election figures to the new boundaries for all seats, as well as summarizing the extent of alterations, creations, and abolitions. It also contains twelve useful electoral maps, and a most instructive index of representativeness. It is an essential guide for the 1969 federal election.
