Summary
  • "Thomas Dye explodes the myth that public policy represents the "demands of the people." By focusing on the activities of foundations, think tanks, political campaign contributors, special-interest groups, lobbyists, law firms, and the media, Dye makes a compelling argument that public policy in America reflects the values, interests, and preferences of the governing elite. In so doing, Dye successfully turns the rhetoric of the "democratic process" on its head and provides a thoughtful and critical analysis of government "of, by, and for the people.""--Jacket
