Description: Mosca's theory of the ruling class (that society is not ruled either by a single autocrat or a democratic majority, but by a small and powerful group that make up a very small minority of the population at large) was developed during the years 1878-1881 while he was a student and is derived from the methods employed by Taine in his evaluation of the Ancien Regime. Translated by Hannah D. Kahn with an introduction by Arthur Livingston. A very good copy without dust jacket, spine head and tail slightly bumped, binding tight, contents clean.
