Remembering Elites free pdf This collection will be essential reading for all those interested in the intimate relationship between elites and the remaking of present day capitalism. This work: investigates how in the last thirty years elites have been forgotten in social sciences but remembered as capitalism- brings together an interdisciplinary team of contributors including sociologists, anthropologists, political scientists,and management researchers all arguing for and demonstrating the need to resume elite studies- tackles the paradox of memory and forgetting by explaining how neo-positivism and post-structuralist theory both marginalised elites as intellectual object while financialized capitalism created lucrative new elite positions- evaluates the historical changes since Thatcher and Reagan and explores the changing elite cultures in the civil service. This work also: explores the possibilities of a Bourdieusian, comparative analysis of business and finance within British and French business networks- includes essays which balance the concern with financialization on cultural elites and consumption of elites- and, considers whether there is still an 'intellectual' cultural elite and contributes empirical studies of elite consumption in the UK.
