The elite connection : problems and potential of Western democracy by Eva Etzioni-Halevy( Book )

15 editions published between 1992 and 2005 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designed as a textbook for courses in political theory, political sociology and comparative politics, and as a contribution in its own right, this book explores the role of elite relations as a key to understanding democracy. Following a critical review of the literature on democracy and elites, the author argues that although Western democracy is not 'government by the people' and has not created equality, it is unique in that (more than any other regime) it has generated a relative separation of power holders, or a relative autonomy of elites and sub-elites in the control of resources. Developing this argument the author discloses strengths and weaknesses in democracy's infrastructure. The Elite Connection contains a warning that a major danger to democracy stems from the tendency of elites to make incursions into the autonomy of other elites, and to develop excessively close dependency relations, either in subjugation of them, or in collusion with them, which result in threats to civil liberties and to the very foundations of democracy. It argues, however, that democracy has the built-in potential to counter its own subversions. Although it focuses on elites, the book has an egalitarian perspective: it concludes with the argument that the separation of elites makes possible struggles for greater equality. The still relatively independent elites of social movements have the potential of pushing democracy towards greater participation and equality

Hannah is singularly devoted to Elkanah, but remains childless for many years, until a promise to God brings her the child she has yearned for, a son she is obligated to return to the service of her people, the great Israelite prophet Samuel
