The Power Elite

New Edition

C. Wright Mills
Afterword by Alan Wolfe

  • Examines and critiques the organization of power in the United States, calling attention to three firmly interlocked prongs of power: the military, corporate, and political elite.
  • Alan Wolfe's astute afterword to this new edition brings us up to date, illustrating how much more has changed since the book was first published in 1956.
  • Continues to encourage generations of readers to think about the kind of society they have and the kind of society they might want.
