Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of author names and terms that are mentioned in the book titled Elites: New Comparative Perspectives. Elites come in many forms and express themselves in an extraordinary variety of ways. This book reflects that diversity. The book begins with Heinrich Best's "New Challenges, New Elites? Changes in the Recruitment and Career Patterns of European Representative Elites." Best's focus is on "long-term changes in the recruitment patterns of European representative elites," which he describes as the "aggregate result of selectorates' responses to a sequence of fundamental problems challenging polities since the emergence of modern representative political institutions in the 19th century".

Keywords:European representative elites; political institutions
