Editorial Reviews

William P. Browne
This brief but very readable manuscript raises numerous questions for further scholarly work throughout its pages. Anyone embarking on a new or revisited study should read every essay. Not only are the academic commentators challenging, the practitioners of the lobbying trade are as well.
Clive S. Thomas
Representing Interest Groups and Interest Group Representation combines an excellent overview of our present knowledge in interest group studies and suggestions for future research with perspectives on group activity by several types of lobbyists. Scholars and graduate students alike will find this a valuable resource as most of the material found in the volume is not available in other interest group texts.
