amusing anecdotes9 Aug. 2005
- Published on Amazon.com
While the book is certainly of serious intent, it has amusing anecdotes from its authors. These concern the unusual difficulties encountered in trying to interview or otherwise access the various elites under scrutiny. Almost by definition, an elite is difficult to get to.
But, after some travails, the authors were successful to some extent. Hollywood stars, corporate managers and Anglican clergy are amongst those scrutinised. No shattering insights. But some thoughtful analysis of how to systematically study small, influential groups.
