Reviews of previous editions:
'Well informed and perceptive, a very accomplished book which really does add to the sum of knowledge about, and understanding of, the way that Europe really works.' - Neil Kinnock, former Vice-President, European Commission
'Greenwood provides a lucid and authoritative account of interest representation, based on his own researches and a mastery of the specialist literature... This is a really excellent book which should be read with pleasure and profit both by undergraduates and advanced researchers in the field.' - Andrew Macmullen, Political Studies
'[A] really excellent book. It is packed with information, and elegantly written. [T]his book admirably justifies [the author's] assertion that what he is studying is not a narrow specialism within the study of the EU, but a central aspect of the subject.' - Stephen George
