This path-breaking book leads us on a journey through the institutional structures and issue-related factors that shape the lobbying worlds of the United States and the European Union, showing us that the two are not as different as is commonly believed. We understand advocacy on both sides of the Atlantic better thanks to Mahoney's work. -- Beth L. Leech, Rutgers University There has of course been previous good work on lobbying in the US and in the EU-and indeed good work attempting comparison. What makes this volume a step change in the field is the way conventional argument is undermined by first selecting cases in a theoretically informed way and then engaging in large-scale interviewing that allows careful characterization of advocacy strategy and success. With hindsight research should always have been like this. Hard to imagine this won't change future practice. -- Grant Jordan, professor of politics, University of Aberdeen, Scotland For all too long, interest group scholars in Europe and the United States have been so profoundly separated in both method and theory that they could safely ignore each other. Brussels Versus the Beltway signals the end of this not-so-splendid isolation and the beginning of new era of comparative interest group scholarship. -- David Lowery, Department of Public Administration, University of Leiden Brussels Versus the Beltway is an important, carefully crafted work that breaks new ground in both the study of the EU and of interest groups. -- Jeffrey M. Berry, Tufts University
Christine Mahoney is an assistant professor at the Maxwell School of Syracuse University. Her research has been supported by a Fulbright Fellowship, a visiting position at the Free University of Brussels, and a position as visiting junior scholar at Oxford University.
The use of a random sample of policy issues makes Mahoney's study the methodologically soundest one to date on several dimensions of EU lobbying. Journal of Public Policy
