Overview

Based on the most comprehensive survey ever conducted on elite groups in the U.S., this book draws a fascinating portrait of American leaders, from federal judges and business executives to military officers and motion picture magnates. The authors examine theories of American society and analyze characteristics and differences among elite groups-groups they find sharply divided in complex ways on various issues.
