Guide to Interest Groups and Lobbying in the United States

Edited by:


August 2011 | 512 pages | CQ Press
Guide to Interest Groups and Lobbying in the United States offers a thematic analysis of interest groups and lobbying in American politics and over the course of American political history. It explores how interest groups have organized and articulated their support for numerous issues, and have they grown – both in numbers and range of activities – to become an integral part of the U.S. political system.

Beginning with the foundations of interest groups during the late 19th Century Gilded Age, to the contemporary explosive growth of lobbying, Political Action Committees, and new forms of interest group cyberpolitics, readers are provided with multiple approaches to understanding the complex and changing interest advocacy sphere .

"The large subgenre of literature addressing various aspects of interest group lobbying in the United States includes many specialized directories...Combining both ready reference and narrative information, this guide, as the introduction accurately notes, is a 'good place to start' research on this very important topic."
