Description - Elites and Society by Tom Bottomore

Revised and enlarged, the author of this book, Tom Bottomore, reconsiders elite theory in the light of more recent studies. He examines the role and significance of elites in relation to classes and class structure in both advanced industrial and developing countries, and expounds the criticism of elites and elitism that have been formulated by democratic and socialist thinkers and movements. In a new concluding chapter, Professor Bottomore considers the prospect, as humanity approaches the millennium, for a renewed advance towards more egalitarian forms of society, in which all citizens would be able to participate more fully and effectively in the shaping of their social world. Bottomore is the author of numerous books, most recently: "Theories of Modern Capitalism", Allen and Unwin (1985); and "Classes in Modern Society".
