  • Brings together an interdisciplinary team of contributors including sociologists, anthropologists, political scientists,and management researchers all arguing for and demonstrating the need to resume elite studies

  • Evaluates the historical changes since Thatcher and Reagan and explores the changing elite cultures in the civil service
  • Explores the possibilities of a Bourdieusian, comparative analysis of business and finance within British and French business networks
  • Includes essays which balance the concern with financialization on cultural elites and consumption of elites

From the Back Cover:

In the last thirty years elites have been forgotten in social sciences but remembered as capitalism has come to reward them in ever more stark ways.

These essays from the ESRC Centre for Research on Socio Cultural Change (CRESC) bring together an interdisciplinary team including sociologists, anthropologists, political scientists and management researchers all arguing for and demonstrating the need to resume elite studies. The issues which this collection explores include:


- How to (re) conceptualise elites in present day capitalism?


- What methods do we need to study elites?


- How significant are elites as social and political agents?


- How has financialisation shaped elite formation?


- How are intermediaries important?


- What about cultural elites?


In pursuing these common issues, the book includes empirical studies of the UK, Canada, Greece, France, as well as various international institutions. A wide range of methods, from survey analysis through social network analysis, ethnographic research and documentary analysis is used to make this the most wide ranging and ambitious engagement with elite studies to have been published for many years.

About the Author:

Mike Savage is Professor of Sociology at Manchester University, and Director of the ESRC Centre for Research on Socio-Cultural Change (CRESC).

Karel Williams is Professor of Accounting and Political Economy at Manchester University, and a member of the ESRC Centre for Research on Socio-Cultural Change (CRESC).
