State legislators have often been in the shadow of their national counterparts, but they drive the processes of democracy. Rosenthal brings together a lifetime of research and experience on state legislative politics into one eminently readable volume—a dynamic, inside view of the people involved, the politics that prevail, and the interest groups and lobbyists who advocate their causes. Building on earlier work with new data and recent interviews and observations, Rosenthal looks at the way representation works, Americans’ critical view of their legislatures, the role of legislative leaders, the dynamics of executive-legislative relationships, as well as norms and ethics. Both a complement and contrast to the policymaking process on Capitol Hill, Engines of Democracy proves that no one gives insight into state legislators and their work the way Alan Rosenthal can.

This book examines the activities of lobbyists in the three largest global lobbying markets - Washington, London and Brussels - and places those activities in the context of the political, cultural and institutional environments, within which lobbying is undertaken in those locations. Its fundamental premise is that institutions and political frameworks make a great deal of difference to which effective lobbyists will approach their work. Based on interviews with 60 lobbyists in those cities, the book seeks to describe the range of activities which they undertake - from monitoring to research, grass roots efforts to coalition building, atmosphere setting to direct advocacy. In the first section of this book, these activities are analysed and the lobbyists' views explained, in the light of current academic and popular literature. The second section contains detailed transcripts of interviews with 16 of the lobbyists, in which they speak at length and in their own words. research into lobbying - too often, academic works on lobbyists treat lobbyists' experiences and expertise as peripheral to the mathematical modeling of their activities.
