Gaetano Mosca and Elitism

Elitism wasn't always a dirty word, though it may never have been a very nice one, either. Gaetano Mosca, a Sicilian, popularized a theory of elites and social hierarchies as part of a wider political philosophy rooted in the work of Marx and even Plato. His work was translated into many languages and has become a defining standard in the field of sociology. Read about Gaetano Mosca in the February edition of Best of Sicily Magazine.
