During TMR's Easter break, we take the opportunity to share a classic interview - "Who Rules America?" - with Dr. G. William Domhoff, Research Professor of Sociology at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Conducted as part of the Alternative Views TV series co-founded by Frank Morrow and Douglas Kellner, which addessed issues often ignored or misrepresented by the mainstream media, this impressive interview explores the structures of power in the US and analyses the dominant role of the Power Elite.
Although recorded back in 1986 and focused specifically on the US context, this important interview nevertheless contains many valuable insights into the dynamics of elitist power that can help to inform our understanding of the contemporary context as we unwillingly journey into a New World Order.
