Abstract and Keywords

This article provides a discussion on mobilization and the effect of business interests, emphasizing American domestic politics. One major area of research involves questions over why and when business participates in politics. Participation could involve several different kinds of behaviours. The forms and magnitude of business influence in politics raise questions of interest not only to political scientists but also to the public at large. Four books, by David Vogel (1989), Frank Baumgartner and Bryan Jones (1993), Mark Smith (2000), and Sheldon Kamieniecki (2006), offer two lasting lessons for future research on business influence. These books nevertheless provide an important perspective for future research on business and politics to consider.

Keywords: business interests, American domestic politics, David Vogel, Frank Baumgartner, Bryan Jones, Mark Smith, Sheldon Kamieniecki, mobilization
