Arguing that the power in America is concentrated in large institutions, this book studies the people at the top of these institutionsâwho they are, how much power they wield, and how they came to power. Tom Dye has chronicled the national leadership since the Nixon-Ford years, each edition featuring the current president and his staff. The seventh edition focuses on the new Bush administration and the contrast it will bring to Washington following 8 years of Clinton dominance.

This edition describes the return of the Bush dynasty to power. It includes a new chapter on âThe Money Eliteâ , describing the power of the banking and financial community as well as the Federal Reserve Board; Chapter 7 now covers important issues concerning elite interlocking, recruitment, social characteristics, class, and factionalism; the discussion of âHow Institutional Leaders Make Public Policyâ has been expanded greatly in Chapter 8; several discussions have been added, including âThe Globalization of Economic Power,â âThe Battle for IBM,â âAlan Greenspan: Ruling over Money,â âHillary Clinton: Power and Ambition,â and âLiberal and Conservative Factions among Elitesâ .
