Ages of Organization: The Emergence of National Interest Groups in American History
THOMAS T. HOLYOKE traces and analyzes the rise of interest groups in American history. He finds that growing economic activity the late 19th and early 20th centuries lead to the emergence of a robust group community, often in the form of trade associations mobilized to defend industries and professions against government regulation. He argues that this growth in the reach of government power also led to the emergence of citizen advocacy groups calling for even greater use of state power to promote social and economic reforms.
