Chapter Summaries Chapter 1- The Irony of Democracy This chapter describes the meaning of elitism and the meaning of democracy and shows that they cannot truly coexist in the purest form of each system. Dye shows that the irony of democracy is that the elite must make the decisions that the rest of the people have to follow. Also discussed in this chapter are certain threats that can hurt democracy. Two of these threats are terrorism and civil unrest based on scandals or court rulings. These two things can whip the masses into mobs and cloud judgment. The chapter concludes by joining the ideas of elitism and democracy stating that every government must be ruled by the elite, even democracies.

Dye states that there were no great and sudden changes in the ideas of the American elites even when power shifted from one party to the other because they all had the same common interests.
He also explains how there were more and more types of elite as the time went on. This is because there were more manners in which people could become rich as more land was taken for the USA.
These people were unusually Jacksonians. They thought that people with new money should have as much influence as those with old money. Even with the arrival of new influences, the elite stayed rigid in their belief that not everyone should have an equal say in the government activities. After and during World War II, it was seen in the enemy that the elite should be responsible for the well being of the general population. Chapter 4- Elites in America Chapter four deals with the modern elites in America.
The corporate upper-class is put under a microscope and analyzed in this chapter. Data suggests that a small percent of industrial companies control the majority of the industrial assets in the USA.
This is the same case with banks controlling banking assets. This is ironic because, like the government, a small percent of top companies practically run the rest of the smaller companies.
Also talked about in chapter four is the role of CEOs and other high ranking executives in the corporate world today. A stunning statistic shows the overall greed that runs deep in corporate boardrooms.
The average CEO makes times more pay than a low level employee.
Once again, an upper-class, usually white, well educated man is making decisions for the masses without fully consulting them. This is converse to the ideal American democracy. Chapter 5- Masses in America Chapter five explains many things about how the masses function in our system of government. Dye says that the overall earnings of the average American worker has steeply lessened in the last few decades. This is largely because international trade has exploded in the past years.
Instead of having American workers making goods with a minimum wage and limited work hours, it is cheaper to import goods from overseas. Home About Help Search.
