This is the first volume comprehensively to explore the dynamics of political interest groups in the twelve southern states – the types of group, lobbyists and lobbying tactics, state regulation of lobbying activity, and the power they exert in the individual states. The authors bring a new dimension to the study of southern politics, which traditionally has emphasized electoral politics and the politics of race, and their work underscores the pivotal, and at times controlling, role played by interest groups.

Ronald J. Hrebenar is professor of political science at the University of Kentucky and coauthor of The Legislative Process in the U.S. (4th ed.) and The Kentucky Legislature.

Clive S. Thomas is professor of political science at the University of Alaska, Juneau, whose latest publication is Politics and Public Policy in the Contemporary American West (1991).
