Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled Elites: New Comparative Perspectives contains the table of contents. Elites come in many forms and express themselves in an extraordinary variety of ways. This book reflects that diversity. The book begins with the work of John Higley, very well known in the area of elites, and Jan Pakulski. It explores elites and leadership in a number of different liberal democracies covering most of the world's continents, offering contemporary as well as historical comparisons, and concluding that contemporary "ascendant elites are more leonine and top leaders are more pugnacious".

Keywords:Jan Pakulski; John Higley; liberal democracy
