Mark J. Sheehan, ed.

Advocates and Persuaders, Australian Scholarly Publishing, Melbourne, 2019; electronic version available

The authors of Advocates and Persuaders aim to demystify the political practice of lobbying. They believe that lobbying has a significant role to play in a healthy democracy, and they examine it closely in the contexts of federal, state and local government. They also shine a spotlight on the involvement of the media, regulators and pollsters in lobbying and include as case studies analyses of lobbying by a diversity of organisations, ranging widely from large corporations to grass roots activists.
