MEDIA REVIEWS

"Shadow lobbyists, dark money, foreign interest groups, negative lobbying, church politics, big tobacco, little special district governance, and the Tea Party,...Cigler, Loomis, and Nownes really have it all! With concise and well-written articles, Interest Group Politics once again makes contributions to the field of interest group scholarship even while it remains an indispensable tool for undergraduate and graduate education. It should be in every political science major's book bag and on every professor's shelf."

-- Thomas Holyoke

"One can count on very few fingers the number of texts of this sort that have survived over so many editions and over so many years in the face of repeated challengers. But there is a reason for this. Interest Group Politics has remained fresh and exciting, always reflecting - and sometimes leading - the dynamic changes in the developing field of interest representation over recent decades. The current edition is no exception. Interest Groups Politics remains an essential tool in teaching the politics of organized interests."

-- David Lowery

"Interest Group Politics is a tour-de-force. This edition raises the bar and provides the reader with critically relevant analyses of labor and the Tea Party, among other organized interests, and comprehensive coverage of interest group electioneering and lobbying efforts. It's all here, and every scholar and student of interest groups should have this book and pore over the detail and data in each chapter."

-- Michael Franz

"This new edition once again makes it possible to learn about interest group politics through cutting-edge research by top scholars. The breadth and insight of these volumes make them valuable to professors and students alike."

-- Beth Leech
