Who's Running America?: The Clinton Years
Arguing that the power in America is concentrated in large institutions, this work studies the people at the top of these institutions - who they are, how much power they wield and how they came to power. The volume chronicles the changes in leadership in Washington accompanying the first Democratic administration in 12 years, assesses recent developments in corporate governance in America, and describes how changes in technology, especially in the mass media, have inspired challenges to established elites.
