CHAP. 35, "POWER ELITE" MILLS
-Sociologists C.Wright Mills argues that the most important decisions in this country
are made by a cohesive power elite.
-Power elite: consists of the top leaders in three areas: The corporate elite is made up of
the executives from large companies; the military elite is the senior officers; and the
small political includes the president and top officials in the executive and legislative
branches.
-Leading men in each of the three domains of power-the warlords, the corporation
chieftains, the political directorate, tend to come together, to form the power elite of
America.
-Elite are people who have money, power, prestige
-American society has never passed through a feudal epoch is of decisive importance to
the nature of the American elite, as as to American society as a historic whole. For it
means that no nobility or aristocracy, established before the capitalist era, has stood
in sense opposition to the higher bourgeoisie. It means that this bourgeoisie has
monopolized not only wealth but prestige and power as well. No set of noble families
has commanded the top positions and monopolized the values that are generally held
in high-esteem; and certainly that no set has done so explicitly by inherited right. No
church dignitaries or count nobilities, no entrenched landlords with honorific
accouterments; no monopolists of high army posts have opposed the enriched
bourgeoisie and in the name of birth and prerogative successfully resisted its self-
making.
