The Governmental Process: Political Interests and Public Opinion

By David B. Truman | Go to book overview

Selected Bibliography
The literature relevant to the study of interest groups in American government is voluminous. In fact, few documents dealing in any way with public policy do not contain some materials bearing upon interest groups. A large number of useful references will be found in such bibliographies as BRUCE L. SMITH, HAROLD D. LASSWELL, AND RALPH D. CASEY: Propaganda, Communication, and Public Opinion: A Comprehensive Reference Guide ( Princeton, N. J.: Princeton University Press, 1946). The following items, selected from among those which have been most useful in preparing this study, may be helpful for the reader who wishes to examine the subject further.
1. References of a general character dealing with political interest groups or broadly with the role of various social groups.
Among the social psychological discussions likely to prove most suggestive:
GORDON W. ALLPORT: "The Psychology of Participation," Psychological Review, Vol. 53, no. 3 ( May, 1945), pp. 117-32;
HADLEY CANTRIL: The Psychology of Social Movements ( New York: John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 1941);
P. F. LAZARSFELD, B. BERELSON, AND H. GAUDET: The People's Choice: How the Voter Makes Up His Mind in a Presidential Campaign ( New York: Columbia University Press, 1948);
ALEXANDER H. LEIGHTON: The Governing of Men ( Princeton, N. J.: Princeton University Press, 1945);
