in Politics for Hire: The World and Work of Policy Professionals, edited by S. Svallfors. Cheltenham: Edward Elgar Publishing, pp.78–98.
This ground-breaking book investigates the work of policy professionals. They consist of political actors who, although not elected to office, are nonetheless employed to affect policy and politics on a partisan basis. Through an analysis of the influence and power they wield, this book sheds light on how the growth of this group represents a major transformation of the organization of politics and policy-making in advanced democracies.
