The population ecology of interest representation : lobbying communities in the American states by Virginia Gray( Book )
8 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and held by 303 libraries worldwide
This examination of lobbying communities explores how interest group populations are constructed and how they influence politics and public policy. By examining how populations of interest groups are comprised, this work fills an important gap between existing theories of the origins of individual interest groups and studies of interest group influence. The population ecology model of interest communities developed here builds on insights first developed in population biology and later employed by organizational ecologists. This book should be of interest to political scientists working on lobbying and interest groups and social scientists interested in the development of organizations

Interest groups and health care reform across the United States by Virginia Gray( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 235 libraries worldwide
Universal health care was on the national political agenda for nearly a hundred years until a comprehensive (but not universal) health care reform bill supported by President Obama passed in 2010. The most common explanation for the failure of past reform efforts is that special interests were continually able to block reform by lobbying lawmakers. Yet, beginning in the 1970s, accelerating with the failure of the Clinton health care plan, and continuing through the passage of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, health policy reform was alive and well at the state level. Interest Groups and Health Care Reform across the United States assesses the impact of interest groups to determine if collectively they are capable of shaping policy in their own interests or whether they influence policy only at the margins. What can this tell us about the true power of interest groups in this policy arena? The fact that state governments took action in health policy in spite of opposing interests, where the national government could not, offers a compelling puzzle that will be of special interest to scholars and students of public policy, health policy, and state politics
American states and cities by Virginia Gray( Book )
6 editions published between 1991 and 1997 in English and held by 164 libraries worldwide
"In American States and Cities, Professors Gray and Eisinger help students understand American public affairs through consideration of the role that subnational governments play today in shaping the political life of the nation. Using the concepts of exit, voice, and loyalty, this text explores the political and policy implications of the migration of people and businesses from region to region, city to suburb and state to state. This volume also covers the framework for policymaking - governors and mayors, legislative bodies, voters, parties, and interest groups, and the bureaucracy - in thorough detail. New additions to the second edition include chapters on the state bureaucracy and on community power, discussion of contemporary policy issues, inclusion of the latest social science literature, and in-depth information on the standard framework elements of state and local government and politics. The coverage of policy areas is also greatly expanded, breaking what were formerly just two policy chapters into four to include a discussion of issues in constructing and regulating technology infrastructure."--BOOK JACKET
The organization ecology of interest communities : assessment and agenda ( Book )
5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 61 libraries worldwide
"The organization ecology approach to the study of interest representation and lobbying is now almost two decades old, and a substantial body of theoretical and empirical work in both the United States and Europe has developed using this approach. Critically assessing this body of work, this collection summarises the origins and development of this research program, grounding it more firmly in the larger literature on organization ecology. It provides critical assessments of this literature from those working outside of its theoretical and empirical confines to respond to those critics and to outline an agenda for research for the future using the organization ecology approach to interest representation. The contributions to the book provide a review of the research program for those using organization ecology to study interest representation, outlines how it contributes to the larger body of work on both interest representation and organization ecology, and encourages future research on interest representation from a community-level perspective."--

Politics in the American states : a comparative analysis ( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The "devolution revolution" has come to an end. States today have more power and more responsibilities than in the past, yet more financial constraints as well. In the wake of 9/11 and subsequent homeland security demands, the fiscal crises states currently face complicate an already complex political environment. Decisions about taxing and spending-a difficult enterprise under any circumstances-challenge policymakers as they shape their responses to other emerging issues, such as vouchers, health care reform, and social regulation. [This book provides] comprehensive comparative analysis of the 50 states. Twenty authors ... provide thorough coverage of key topics, including foundational chapters on intergovernmental relations, elections, and the legislative process, as well as new chapters on the initiative process and specific policy areas such as education and taxes.-
