Interest Groups [electronic resource]: Organizing to Influence

Loading...
Shows how America's large number of corporate, citizen-action, and grass-roots interest groups enhance our representative process by giving citizens a role in shaping policy agendas. Examples include the controversy and lobbying over the "Crusader" weapsons system; the opposition of the National Campaign for Jobs and Income Support to the proposed 2002 changes to the Welfare Bill, and citizen action that prevented highways from being built through the center of South Pasadena, California.

The Power Game: The Pentagon

Loading...
Shows that in spite of the huge military build-up during the 1980s the nation's military effectiveness has been limited and could force the early use of nuclear weapons. Reasons include rivalry among the military services, career moves, coverups, pork barrel funding, erroneous military test results, and whistle blower backlash. Shows how military spending decisions are often made less for national security reasons than for economic and political interests. With little hope of change in sight, the massive waste and inefficiency in the Pentagon's procurement of arms will continue.
