'For anyone wishing to delve deeper into these complexities of pressure-group politics in Britain, Wyn Grant's book is an excellent place to start. It is clearly and accessibly written and guides the reader through a logical and impressively informed study of pressure groups, with support from highly appropriate, concise, case studies in each section...Pressure Groups and British Politics remains one of the best introductions to the subject available.' - Michael Woods, Environment and Planning 'The latest in the excellent Contemporary Political Studies to arrive, the title and the author almost make review in this section superfluous...Brief, succinct and readable, this is well worth adding to any list of books worth considering on this topic.' - Talking Politics 'Students will welcome this important addition to the collection of works on British politics...practitioners and academics looking for a reader on British influence-peddling are also likely to find a very valuable tool.' - Mark Aspinwall, Journal of Common Market Studies 'This is an excellent work on pressure groups, whether one sees it as a treatise on the subject or a textbook for students.' - T.P. Wolf, APSA, British Politics Group 'Building on previous texts and considerable experience in the field Wyn Grant again has produced an excellently written and accessible text on pressure groups in British Politics.' - Dr Alan Greer, University of The West of England
