Finally…Lobbying Explained Clearly From A-Z

Former President of American League of Lobbyists Releases Definitive Step-By-Step Instruction Manual, Debunks Old Myths

When the stakes are as high as they are in lobbying, there's no room for error. Deanna R. Gelak, former President of the American League of Lobbyists, has just published the definitive manual for would-be lobbyists: an essential resource for anyone involved in lobbying from the corporate, government, academic, or librarian perspective.

In 514 pages of well-researched, clearly-written, hands-on material, existing and prospective lobbyists (and those who work with them) will learn (among many other things):

Using diagrams, graphics, checklists, call-outs and other features to humanize this complex material, Lobbying and Advocacy is a one-volume course containing everything a lobbyist, agency employee, or Congressional staffer needs to know about lobbying.

Along with all the practical information, the book also looks at the history of lobbying, and debunks several long-held myths--including the much-told story about the origin of the term in President Ulysses S. Grant's frequent sojourns to the lobby of the Willard Hotel. Gelak proves (and shows the documents) that the term goes back at least to 1820, two years before Grant's birth--and the practice is far older than that.
