Book Review Abstract

Donald Palmer of University of California, Davis reviews, "The Fracturing of the American Corporate Elite" by Mark S. Mizruchi. The Econlit abstract of this book begins: "Examines the rise and fall of the American corporate elite between 1945 and the present and considers the role of this decline in the current crises of American democracy and economics. Discusses the rise of the American corporate elite; the state and the economy; labor as uneasy partner; the banks as mediators; the breakdown of the postwar consensus; winning the war but losing the battle—the fragmentation of the American corporate elite; the aftermath; and the ineffectual elite. Mizruchi is Barger Family Professor of Organizational Studies and Professor of Sociology and Business Administration at the University of Michigan."
