This book is about changing the law and how to do it. Its aim is to help others gain the confidence to do the same and give practical advice. It is an ideal guide for the busy person who wishes to understand how to influence government but does not know how or where to start.

It contains elements of case study as well as useful observations and suggestions on how to apply the same techniques in different situations. It reviews and summarises the existing literature on practical lobbying and contains guides to further sources of information,reference and help. This will enable readers to start lobbying immediately, without needing to join a large organisation or get involved in bureaucracy.

The book covers the workings of Parliament, approaching MPs, setting up campaigns; getting into the newspapers and dealing with civil servants. It also includes a guide to sources of knowledge, such as books, databases, useful Internet sites, reviews and summaries of the key points of other useful books in this field.
