What People are Saying About This

Norman Ornstein

Outside Money provides the first systematic analysis, using case studies, of a hugely significant and deeply troubling trend in American elections. It is a first-rate piece of work.
Norman Ornstein

Ron Facheux

David Magleby has done a superlative job looking into the superlative job looking into the matter of outside money in political campaigns.
Ron Facheux, Editor-in-chief

Brooks Jackson

Call this investigative scholarship. Professor Magleby's research shines a light into the dark corners of American politics, revealing ways that interest groups spend millions to influence elections, often out of public view.
Brooks Jackson

Lily Eskelsen

Candidates, like myself, who have been involved with soft dollar contributions, find them a double-edged sword. Every one of those candidates will tell you where interest group electioneering really helped them and they were grateful for it, and where they wanted to slap those people sill and tell them to get out of their campaign. There is a real problem, in some cases, of being out of control of your own campaign. Do we let the tail wag the dog? That's a terrible situation for a candidate to face, and this book describes it perfectly.
Lily Eskelsen

Thomas E. Mann

Outside Money challenges the candidate-centered and media-focused perspective on congressional elections and raises troubling questions about the adequacy of campaing communication and the robustness of democratic accountability.
Thomas E. Mann

James A. Thurber

An important and unique contribution to our knowledge of American elections. It should be read by anyone interested in campaigns and elections, interest group politics, and media and politics generally.
James A. Thurber
