Who rules America now? : a view for the '80s by G. William Domhoff( Book )

22 editions published between 1983 and 1997 in English and held by 1,123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author is convinced that there is a ruling class in America today. He examines the American power structure as it has developed in the 1980s. He presents systematic, empirical evidence that a fixed group of privileged people dominates the American economy and government. The book demonstrates that an upper class comprising only one-half of one percent of the population occupies key positions within the corporate community. It shows how leaders within this "power elite" reach government and dominate it through processes of special-interest lobbying, policy planning and candidate selection. It is written not to promote any political ideology, but to analyze our society with accuracy

Class and power in the New Deal : corporate moderates, southern Democrats, and the liberal-labor coalition by G. William Domhoff( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Domhoff (sociology, U. of California at Santa Cruz) and Webber (sociology, U. of San Francisco) seek to explain the New Deal origins and implementation of the Agricultural Adjustment Act, the National Labor Relations Act, and the Social Security Act through their theory of class dominance in the United States (rooted in the work of sociologists C. Wright Mills and Michael Mann) as critically compared to three rival theories: historical institutionalism, Marxism, and protest-disruption theory. In essence, they argue that Northern corporate moderates proposed all three major policies (sometimes in response to pressures from organized labor and other leftist activists), that corporate ultraconservatives opposed the policies to little effect because they were not well-represented in Congress, and that the Southern Democrats were able to shape the proposals to fit the needs of plantation capitalists and other large agricultural interests throughout the country
Diversity in the power elite : how it happened, why it matters by Richard L Zweigenhaft( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wright Mills called 'the power elite.' It examines why and how the power elite has diversified, the pathways taken by those who have entered the power elite, and the effect this diversification has had on the way power works in the United States
The leftmost city : power and progressive politics in Santa Cruz by Richard Gendron( Book )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Almost all U.S. cities are controlled by real estate and development interests, but Santa Cruz, California, is a deviant case. An unusual coalition of socialist-feminists, environmentalists, social-welfare liberals, and neighborhood activists has stopped every growth project proposed by landowners and developers since 1969 and controlled the city council since 1981. Drawing on hundreds of primary documents, as well as original, previously unpublished interviews, The Leftmost City utilizes an extended case study of Santa Cruz to critique major theories of urban power: Marxism, public choice theory, and regime theory. Santa Cruz is presented within the context of other progressive attempts to shape city government, and the authors' flndings support growth coalition theory, which stresses the conflict between real estate interests and neighborhoods as the fundamental axis of urban politics
