Now in its twelfth edition, Public Interest Group Profiles places the information you need about America's most influential public advocacy groups at your fingertips. Rather than searching through dozens of documents, databases, or Web sites, you can turn to one trusted and authoritative source for vital information such as: assessments of group effectiveness and group political orientation, contact information, mission statements, funding sources, leadership and membership information, publication lists, and methods of advocacy. A topical table of contents makes finding groups by issue easier than ever before.

  • America's most influential groups, as identified by the Foundation for Public Affairs and CQ Press
  • Multiple indexes, including a name index that allows users to determine the multiple affiliations of directors and leadership staff
  • Internship and employment contact information to help users discover career opportunities in public advocacy
