Domhoff has periodically up-dated Who Rules America, and what was once a great read has stood the test of time. His prescription was to take over the Democratic Party and use that as a vehicle for progressive social change. As best I can determine, his books, including this one, are a good deal better than his prescription.

Who Rules America? The Triumph of the Corporate RichPaperback. I too read this book in the 1960s. At the time this book represented one half of the debate about who rules America. Who Rules America? Power, Politics, and Social ChangePaperback. The second position was the pluralistic one - that many, many diverse interests ruled America. The debate was unresolved then. In 2016, the same debate continues, but the teetertotter seems to favor the corporations & super wealthy.

Who rules America? Power and politics in the year. For purposes of this book, the crucial issue is whether the highest status group is also an economic class, thereby making it possible to speak of a "social upper class" sharing common economic interests as well as a similar lifestyle.

Who Really Rules? provides a categorical challengeâ empirical, methodological, and . Finally, Domhoff outlines the national policy planning network through which the big business ruling class dominates urban government

Who Really Rules? provides a categorical challengeâ empirical, methodological, and theoreticalâ to Dahlâ s work. Empirically, Domhoffâ s restudy of New Haven shows through newly discovered documents that Dahl was wrong about the pluralism of New Havenâ s power structure. Finally, Domhoff outlines the national policy planning network through which the big business ruling class dominates urban government. Who Really Rules? is unique in that it makes possible for the first time a dialogue between pluralist and ruling-class views on the basis of studies of the same city by leading exponents of the rival theoretical positions.

Among Domhoff's many books are: "The Power Elite and the State: How Policy is Made in America "(Aldine); "Mystique of Dreams; Who Rules America Now?; "and "Jews in the Protestant Establishment. Bibliographic information. Who Rules America?: Power and Politics, and Social Change.

There are several editions to this book, but the first edition is worth the read. Domhoff suggests that there is a power elite consisting of members from upper class backgrounds and others selected by a network of upper class members that guide the nation. He basis this premise on data collected from the Social Register.

I had this book 45 years ago and someone stole it. I have for years sought to find it again, I finally found it at Amazon.com. It is a book that was use as a textbook at a local University in the 1960's. There is much to be learned from this book explaining our political system and that of many other forms of government. We seek the truth, and the truth will surely set us free.

A classic. Would have preferred a more consistent and broad focus on the families and individuals who actually hold all that wealth.
