As close observers of the legislative process, political scientists have developed a detailed understanding of the tactics employed by interest group lobbyists, but our comprehension of the strategies employed by those using these tactics has not expanded at the same rate. Strategizing Influence in Legislative Lobbying fills this gap by providing a nuanced understanding of how governmental advocates develop their lobbying strategies. Through in-depth analysis of context specific data from surveys of and interviews with California lobbyists, the author explores how context, targets, and tactics interact as lobbyists try to influence legislative decision making.

About the Author:

Stacy B. Gordon Fisher is Associate Professor of Political Science at University of Nevada, Reno, USA. Her work on lobbying, campaign contributions, and legislative behavior has appeared in the Journal of Politics, Political Research Quarterly, and other outlets. This is her second book on the role of interest groups in California legislative politics.

Review:

"Thirty years of research on lobbying in America has left a confusing and contested legacy of theories and findings. Stacy B. Gordon Fisher grabs all of this research by the throat and fits it together like a great jigsaw puzzle to create a new, integrated model of strategic lobbying. Supported by rigorous empirical testing, she pulls back of the veil over the intricate world of interest group lobbying. Anybody interested in understanding how lobbying works has to read this book." - Thomas Holyoke, Professor of Political Science, California State University, Fresno, USA

"Stacy B. Gordon Fisher's Strategizing Influence in Legislative Lobbying increases our understanding of interest group behavior by leaps and bounds. Dr. Gordon Fisher offers a novel and compelling model of interest group decision-making that focuses upon the contextual factors that affect groups' choices of lobbying tactics and targets, and then tests notions derived from this model against real world quantitative and qualitative data. The end result is a crucial addition to the interest group canon." - Anthony J. Nownes, Professor of Political Science, University of Tennessee, Knoxville, USA
