Product Description

From the Author

The only published guide to how the system really works
The only published guide to how the system really works
This book aims to do two things: explain how the institutions of government really work; and act as a guide to dealing with the system in the many areas where Government affects businesses, pressure groups and other bodies. The last such manual was pubished ten years ago (by the same author) and this is the only book of its type on the market.

The central principle of the book is that people will make better lobbying decisions when they understand what happens behind the Green Baize Door. We therefore describe the components of the UK and Brussels central and local government system; rate their power and influence; and show how they make decisions before and revealing the techniques used by successful lobbyists to monitor and make representations to politicians and officials. Over 100 boxes give quick tips and case histories covering the questions people need to ask: how to find out out what is going on; who to target; how to deal with them; how to speak the system's language; how to gain supporters and counter opponents; ethics and procedures. There is also advice on organising lobbying resources, showing that you do not have to spend large sums to get results.

Format: Hardcover
I never thought I would see a warts and all, hype-free manual on lobbying from a lobbyist, but this book has everything a company, public body or student needs to understand what goes on within the corridors of power. By demystifying the decision-making process - explaining where politicians do and don't count, for example - the book makes it easy to grasp what does and does not work in the lobbying game. The author makes no bones about the complexity of some of the strategies required if Government is to be made to listed to a case, but the way advice is conveyed shows a genuine desire to draw back the curtain. For this reason alone, it is probably the best book about the route map of government that I have seen.

This is easily the best book yet written on the way Government works. It benefits from practical, rather than academic knowledge of what happens on the inside and it takes a no-nonsense approach to debunking many of the myths put about by many journalists and lobbyists.
The case histories and practical advice featured in over a hundred highlighted boxes are perhaps the best feature for those who need to know what really happens when you write to a Department or of the most cost-effective options for monitoring the system.
Everything a student or businessman needs to know about Government is here.
