With a deft combination of data and telling anecdotes, Richard Zweigenhaft and G. William Domhoff show that women and minorities have made inroads into the power elite, although the overwhelming majority at the top continues to be white, wealthy, Christian, and male. The authors find - and explain the reasons for - striking differences in the representation of these various minorities in the power elite. They also examine how the presence of women and minorities affects the elite group itself.
