Lobbying and Relationship Management: The K Street Connection

Lobbying and Relationship Management: The K Street Connection Even though lobbyists spend millions of dollars in Washington DC, lobbying has been largely ignored by public relations scholars.

The results also indicate political science scholars have been too issue-focused in their research concerning interest groups in Washington, and that the relational perspective holds promise for future studies of lobbying in both the public relations and political science arenas. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Public Relations Research Taylor & Francis
