Interest Group Politics in America (Paperback) (Ronald Hrebenar)
about this item
Special-interest lobbying is one of the most controversial activities in American politics-indeed, groups have been to lobby against it. But, despite campaign finance reform efforts and occasional reprimands or even prosecutions, the importance of special-interest money, its influence in politics, and its sway over the two major political parties has spiraled higher. The only real change seems to be the increasingly skillful use of communications technology by some lobbying organizations
Interest Group Politics is a readable and up-to-date introduction to the study of group power. This edition incorporates abundant illustrations and examples from the campaign finance reform and other current issues in interest group influence.
