The Powers That Be
by G. William Domhoff

Surprisingly readable analysis of the processes by which the rich rule America, written by a socialist. He avoids conspiracy history. He prefers to analyze classes rather than individual actors. He prefers statistics to intrigue. But he has a lot of common sense and he makes intelligent observations. His conclusions are generally warranted by the evidence. He is critical of dogmatic Marxists, but his pro-socialist views are obvious.

Year Read: 1981
