The New Liberalism: The Rising Power of Citizen Groups

Chapter 1
1.
Readers of my earlier book, Lobbying for the People ( Princeton University Press, 1977), may wonder why I use the concept in this book of "citizen group" rather than "public interest group," which I use in that work. The two are not synonyms. Public interest groups are citizen groups, but not all citizen groups are public interest groups. My definition of a public interest group is that it "is one that seeks a collective good, the achievement of which will not selectively and materially benefit the membership or activists of the organization" (p. 7). Since a primary purpose of my latest study was to analyze the mix of material and postmaterial concerns and to determine which groups were pushing different kinds of issues forward, it was important to include those citizen groups that advocate material policies as part or all of their lobbying efforts. The practical consequence of this concern was to include civil rights groups and women's groups and some other citizen lobbies with the environmental and consumer groups that were the predominant focus in Lobbying for the People. In chapter 3 I discuss how public interest groups pursuing collective but material benefits to the poor qualify as advocates of postmaterial goods because of their philanthropic orientation.
