A reprint of the 1967 Little, Brown book, Professor Bachrach considers the age-old question of the role of elites in a democracy. He argues that the present influence of elites in the U.S. can be offset only by the revitalization of political participation. The book also provides a historical and analytical examination of the theory of democratic elitism, as well as its soundness both as empirical and as normative theory.
