ZHANG Yu-pei;ZHAO Cheng-gen;School of Government,Peking University;
From a pluralism perspective,American politician Theodore J. Lowi made an analysis of manifestation of interest-group politics in agricultural,foreign,commercial,labor,urban and welfare policies from New Deal to 1970 s. Through rigorous empirical analysis,Lowi shows us the landscape of interest-group politics in which discretion is overrun,bargaining is constant,and conservativeness and seclusion rise. That interest groups become the core power to shape characteristics of public policy is the inevitable result of having been pursuing interest-group liberalism in political decision-making and social governance since New Deal.This article,through elaborating the developmental logic,concrete manifestation,and shortcomings and solutions of interest-group liberalism in American policy practice,attempts to make a comprehensive comment and analysis on Lowi's theory of interest-group liberalism.
