Recensioner i media
The Hollow Core is by far the most comprehensive survey yet of the Washington lobbyists' life and work...A much more complete and credible analysis about the way modern Washington works emerges than in so many previous accounts. -- Tim Hames Financial Times The most thorough and masterly treatment ever delivered of the role of private interests in national policy making. The Hollow Core will constitute the solid center of research in this field for years to come. It teaches us much, not only about private interests but also about policy making. -- John T. Tierney Political Science Quarterly A monumental piece of empirical research that will be required reading for anyone concerned with interest group representation in the United States. -- Paul A. Sabatier American Journal of Sociology
