This book offers a scholarly yet accessible overview of the role of lobbying in American politics. It draws upon extant research as well as original data gathered from interviews with numerous lobbyists across the United States. It describes how lobbyists do their work within all branches of government, at the national, state, and local levels. It thus offers a substantially broader view of lobbying than is available in much of the research literature. Although tailored for students taking courses on interest group politics, Total Lobbying offers an indispensable survey of the field for scholars and others concerned with this important facet of American politics.

Dem EU-Lobbying eilt ein schlechter Ruf voraus. Die Brüsseler Lobbyingszene gilt als besonders korrupt und intransparent. Die Bürger assoziieren mit ihr üppige Arbeitsessen und geheime Absprachen. Das negative Image wurde durch Skandale wie die „Dalligate“ oder die „Cash-for-Amendments-Affäre“ noch verstärkt. Seither treten Lobbyisten lieber als Interessenvertreter, Consultants oder Public Affairs Manager auf. Dabei ist ihre Expertise ein elementarer Bestandteil europäischer Gesetzgebungsprozesse. Die versuchte Einflussnahme ist nicht per se zu verurteilen, wohl aber die mangelnde Transparenz. Die zunehmende Professionalisierung und Differenzierung europäischer Interessen muss daher mit einer gesetzlichen Regulierung einhergehen.

Lobbying and Policymaking

Built on interviews with over 100 lobbyists, Kenneth Godwin, Scott Ainsworth, and Erik Godwin show that much of the research on organized interests overlooks the lobbying of regulatory agencies even though it accounts for almost half of all lobbying—even though bureaucratic agencies have considerable leeway in the how they choose to implement law. This groundbreaking new book argues that lobbying activity is not mainly a struggle among competing interests over highly collective goods; rather, it's the public provision of private goods. Through a series of highly readable case studies, the authors employ both neopluralist and exchange perspectives to explore the lobbying activity that occurs in the later stages of the policymaking process which are typically less partisan, involve little conflict, and receive scant public attention. Lobbying and Policymaking: The Public Pursuit of Primvate Interests is an ideal way to expose students to cutting-edge research in an accessible, fascinating package.
