Book Reviews

There are new reviews of my book, The Not-So-Special Interests: Interest Groups, Public Representation, and American Governance, in Choice, Contemporary Sociology, and Interest Groups & Advocacy. The book was previously reviewed in Publishers Weekly. There should also be forthcoming reviews in the American Journal of Sociology, the American Review of Politics, and Perspectives on Politics. Choice said: “He develops a tight analytical framework and gathers an impressive array of original data… Grossmann’s contributions… should become staples for those seeking to understand organized interest behavior and influence.” Another review said it “blazes an impressive trail… It mingles real-world insights with heaps of illuminating quantitative data… It should be the first word in many conversations about interest groups.” Another said that the book “would be useful for anyone interested in democracy in America.” Another commented: “This is an extremely useful book, one that will spur debate, discussion, and certainly subsequent research.” Thanks for the positive reviews.
