One thought on “The lobbying behind publishing and textbooks – A First Street report”

  1. who knew there was this level of lobbying going on behalf of Colleges and Universities? how are professors now teaching undergraduate and graduate students about lobbying and advocacy in the political process? this is a great example of directly showing students how lobbying is either positively or adversely affecting their lives.
