In an oligarchy political power rests with a small privileged group. Oligarchs may exercise power directly or indirectly but they often act out of selfish or corrupt motives. This book examines the history of oligarchy which was first described by the ancient Greeks more than 2300 years ago. The book also asks whether today's super-rich constitute a new oligarchy that threatens to undermine democracy in the United States and elsewhere.
