Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungIn this sure-to-be-controversial book, Jeffrey M. Berry argues that modern liberalism is not only still alive, it's actually thriving. Berry explains that although liberal citizen groups make up only a small portion of the thousands of lobbying organizations in Washington, they have been, and will continue to be, a major force in shaping the political landscape.
PortraitJeffrey M. Berry is John Richard Skuse Class of 1941 Professor of Political Science at Tufts University. His most recent book, The New Liberalism: The Rising Power of Citizen Groups (Brookings, 1999) won the Policy Studies Organization's 1999 best book award.
Pressestimmen"Berry marshals copious evidence that over the past four decades, liberal citizen groups have outperformed conservative groups and business lobbies in almost every regard --commanding more positive media attention, winning more legislative victories, and indeed lasting longer as organizations." -- The American Prospect "In 'The New Liberalism' (Brookings Institution Press), Jeffrey Berry, a professor at Tufts University, has tracked the influence of consumer advocacy and environmental groups since the 1960s. He concludes that they have been more effective than corporate lobbyists in getting their case across. Between 1963 and 1991, he says, groups such as Mr Nader's own Public Citizen were better at persuading Congress to discuss issues they cared about, better at catching journalists' attention, and so more efficient in shaping laws." -- The Economist, 2/28/2004
