About this title

Synopsis:

After years of listening to and questioning executives, lobbyists, group activists, policymakers, and their confidants, the author has assembled his thoughts in a text designed for continuing education and undergraduate learning. Coverage includes what interest groups and their representatives do; nonmembership interests that are active in US politics (e.g. individual businesses, foundations, and churches); how organized interests influence public policy making; the historical structure and development of the US government and its lobbies; which interests win and why others never quite get well-organized; and the idea of policy niches. Paper edition (unseen), $15.95. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

About the Author:

William P. Browne is a professor of political science at Central Michigan University. An authority on agricultural policy as well as interest groups and a longtime observer of lobbyists, he has written numerous books, including Cultivating Congress: Constituents, Issues, and Interests in Agricultural Policymaking.

Store Description

The Archives Book Shop is an oasis in time, with material from the 18th Century to the 21st Century, located a few blocks from picturesque Michigan State University with a coffee shop (and waterfall) connecting. We specialize in both modern and old-and-rare items for the collector and pleasure reader, as well as the scholar, with over 25,000 volumes and 40,000 vintage postcards: leather bindings, hardcovers and paperbacks, books that have been read, loved and make the heart sing; wonderful-to-hold-in-your-hand volumes. On any day, you may find signed documents, a letter from W. H. Auden, a leatherbound first edition of Johnson's Tour, a Faulkner paperback, vintage catalogs and automotive ephemera, etchings, atlases, bookends, original bookcover paintings, or real-photo postcards and photographs. We will send email JPG file color images of any item upon request. _________________________________________________________________________ Our store is quiet and unique, and an easy walk to downtown East Lansing, hotels, and Michigan State University. M.S.U is the original land-grant college and is known for its beautiful horticulture gardens and spacious river-centered campus. _________________________________________________________________________ We offer free parking in our large, private lot and are 1 mile east of US-127 freeway, 1 mile from the Amtrak-bus station, 5 blocks from downtown East Lansing, and 15 minutes from the Capital City Airport in Lansing. _________________________________________________________________________ There is a semi-annual bookfair in Lansing, the Michigan Antiquarian Book and Paper Show; we have booths at each show and can provide information about the bookfair, dates, hotels, football games, and maps upon request. We are open 7 days a week, except for major holidays, and welcome all visitors.
