The study of elites has long figured as a central element in sociological theorizing and analysis. The origins of the sociological concept of 'elite' lie in the anti-Marxist writings of the Italian theorists, Pareto and Mosco, who sought to construct an alternative vocabulary to the Marxian emphasis on 'class' and 'class conflict'. From the beginning the study of elites was a highly political and contentious area of debate. This exhaustive three volume set presents those articles which best illustrate the diversity and fruitfulness of work on the sociology of elites. The Sociology of Elites is an essential reference that university libraries world-wide will want to acquire to complete their collection in this important area of research.
