Interest groups form an important part of the development of political and social systems. The Politics of Interest Groups goes beyond current literature in examining the survival and 'careers' of such groups beyond their formation.The book looks at the necessary factors of organizational form to ensure the productivity and influence of an interest group. Using example case studies from the UK, US and Australia, the book presents extensive historical analyses of specific groups, to better understand the organisation and position of such groups within their political system.The Politics of Interest Groups will be of interest to those concerned with advocacy and public representation within political studies.
