Abstract

Can we possibly predict anything about the opinions, attitudes and, ultimately, behaviour of political elites from an understanding however comprehensive, of their social background? Or, put in less ambitious terms does an analysis of the social composition of elites, at any political level, guide us in any way as to their likely intentions and actions? This problem of validity of inferring future and present behavioural patterns from what are essentially static data from the past remains what it has been so faŕ - a problem. The purpose of this paper is a more modest one. It is merely addressed to providing a partial answer to the question: Who governs?
