Summary

This edited collection of original, commissioned essays tells the important story of how interest groups and PACs from business, labor, and other activist organizations have worked with the changing rules governing lobbying and the sea change provided by the Republican Revolution in 1994 to try to achieve their particular goals. Containing a wealth of information that simply is not available anywhere else, After the Revolution will serve a variety of purposes in different courses where students need to understand how Congress and interest groups have interacted, how the current system works, and how certain changes might affect these relationships in the future.
