This text is an invaluable tool for teaching students about how power operates in U.S. society. Its author argues that the owners and top-level managers in large income-producing properties are far and away the dominant figures in the U.S. Their corporations, banks, and agribusinesses dominate the federal government in Washington, while their real estate, construction, and land development companies dominate most local governments. By providing empirical evidence for his argument, William C. Domhoff encourages students to think critically about the power structure in American society and its implications for our democracy.
