About this title

Synopsis:

Writing for an undergraduate audience, Lowery and Brasher take a comprehensive look at the world of interest groups: how they come to exist and how they influence a full range of government policymakers. They fully integrate and organize their text around the three-sided debate between the pluralist perspective, transactions perspective, and neopluralist perspective, as well as a student's direct relationship to public policies through our three branches of government. Features include: 1) Complete coverage of interest organizations from all levels of government: local, state, and national; 2) a concise length, assuring that it can be used with any American Government text; and 3) Questions about Your Interest Organization and Interest Group Examples boxes, bolded key terms and concepts, chapter discussion questions, chapter summaries, and a comprehensive index. Table of Contents: 1. Representing Interests An Argument What We Argue About / The Players and Their Evidence / The Argument in Perspective 2.
