Item description for Interest Group Politics by Allan J. Cigler...
Interest Group Politics presents a broad spectrum of scholarship on interest groups past and present. In a time of partisan parity, when control of Congress is always within reach of the minority party at the next election, interest groups have every incentive to keep the pressure on. And they do. But the imbalance of influence that tilts toward moneyed interests is one of the cornerstones of the political system.
What does this mean for equal representation? In nineteen chapters, noted political scientists explore the role of money, technology, grassroots lobbying, issue advocacy advertising, and much more in interest group influence. Readers will learn how the National Rifle Association has become one of the most effective lobbying groups in America, what opportunities the openness of the American political process has offered ethnic groups both within and outside the United States, how the role of interest groups in elections has changed (including 527's), what effect religious organizations had in the 2004 elections, and how interest groups affect Supreme Court nominations.

Reviews - What do customers think about Interest Group Politics?
A Bit Pricey* Aug 27, 2008
* at $2.37 per chapter ex. tax but possibly worth it if you are obsessed with political thoughts that challenge rather than clavicate you.
This book discusses the theological basis of what I call Northeastern aseo-nonistic-slave society. Anyone who questions the religious self-righteousness of the inside crowd in Washington D.C. should read this book because it highlights the contradictions inherent in the hateful Ivy League educated military-industrial-vegan-libertarian chapterninized pseudo-Jungian socialistic society called Amerika and the teachings of Oswama Joe Biden.
I have acquired a much greater understanding of the history of the religious left, and, being a Hispanic-Korean citizen of an un-named northern state north of Georgia but slightly to the West of Ohio am actively engaged in trying to understand the hatred around which I live through this book.
This book enlightens my perspective and completes me.
