I read Chris Hayes' "Twilight of the Elites" last month and will suggest that you read it too it's an engaging read that addresses the question of whether a meritocratic elite can really stay meritocratic over extended periods of time.
Daniel W. Drezner, Foreign Policy.com
This was a book I found so stimulating and immersive that I cannot wait to be able to discuss it with a larger audience .Even if you think you are aware of the depth of the rot plaguing the highest levels of our society, you will likely earn a new level of outrage by reading this book.

Make[s] you think in new ways about why we tolerate such vast and growing income inequality .an extended meditation on why the great hope and change revolution of 2008 has so far left the inequitable status quo a little bit too intact.

"Twilight of the Elites"by Chris Hayes may change the way you look at the world .[It] almost single-handily undermines virtually every precept we ve come to accept about life in the modern age. It also may well turn out to be the seminal treatise for the so-called FAIL generation, a term that loosely connotes everyone who graduated since the beginning of the 21st Century.

A powerful critique of the meritocratic elite that has overseen one of the most disastrous periods of recent history.
" The American Conservative"
In his new book, "Twilight of the Elites: America After Meritocracy," Hayes raises demanding questions about a nation that is both enamored with and troubled by its elites.
" Reason"
[L]ively and well-informed .Offering feasible proposals for change, this cogent social commentary urges us to reconstruct our institutions so we can once again trust them. "Publishers Weekly" (starred)
[A] forcefully written debut....A provocative discussion of the deeper causes of our current discontent, written with verve and meriting wide interest.
" Kirkus Reviews" (starred)
This is the Next Big Thing that we have been waiting for. "Twilight of the Elites" is the fully reported, detailed, true story of a 21st century America beyond the reach of authority. It s new, and true, and beautifully told -- Hayes is the young left s most erudite and urgent interpreter. Brilliant book.
Rachel Maddow, host of "The Rachel Maddow Show" and author of "Drift"" "
Here is the story of the fail decade and how it made cynicism the inescapable flavor of our times. Along the way Chris Hayes delivers countless penetrating insights as well as passages of brilliant observation. If you want to understand the world you're living in, sooner or later you will have to read this book.
Thomas Frank, author of "Pity the Billionaire"
Chris Hayes is a brilliant chronicler of the central crisis of our time the failure of America's elites. His humane, spirited reporting and analysis capture what millions of Americans already know in their gut the emperor has no clothes. Yet this is not a book defined by despair or cynicism. Hayes seizes this moment of crisis to offer important and unconventional ideas as to how to reconstruct and reinvent our politics and society. "Twilight of the Elites" is a must read book for those, across the political spectrum, who believe there is still time to cure the structural ills of our body politic.
Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor and publisher, "The Nation"
In "Twilight of the Elites," Hayes shows us what links the bailout of investment bankers but not mortgage holders, the useless public conversation in the run-up to the Iraq war, and the Catholic Church's harboring of child rapists: our core institutions are no longer self-correcting, and have become committed to protection of insiders at all costs. Read this and prepare to be enraged.
Clay Shirky, author of "Here Comes Everybody" and "Cognitive Surplus"
"A provocation; a challenge; and a major contribution to the great debate over how the American dream can be restored."
David Frum, contributing editor, "DailyBeast/Newsweek"
Chris Hayes is a gift to this republic. The brilliance he shows us each week on MSNBC has now been complemented by this extraordinary book. Beautifully written, and powerfully argued, it will force you to rethink everything you take for granted about merit. And it will show us a way to a more perfect nation.
Lawrence Lessig, Roy L. Furman Professor of Law and Leadership, Harvard Law School and author of "Republic, Lost"
Chris Hayes has given us the kind of book people don't write any more: a sweeping work of social criticism like Rachel Carson's "Silent Spring" and Michael Harrington's "The Other America" that take the failings of an entire society as their subject. Those books brought grand movements of reform in their wake. Would that history repeats itself with "Twilight of the Elites" America ignores this prophet at their gravest peril.
Rick Perlstein, author of "Nixonland "and "Before the Storm"

Reseña del editor:

Over the past decade, Americans watched in bafflement and rage as one institution after another from Wall Street to Congress, the Catholic Church to Major League Baseball imploded under the weight of corruption and incompetence. In the wake of the Fail Decade, the social contract between ordinary citizens and elites lies in tatters.
How did we get here? With Twilight of the Elites, Christopher Hayes upends well-worn ideological and partisan categories to offer a radically novel answer. Since the 1960s, as the meritocracy elevated a more diverse group of men and women into power, they learned to embrace the accelerating inequality that had placed them near the very top, leaving a new American elite more prone to failure and corruption and more out of touch with the people they govern.
Mixing deft political analysis, timely social commentary, and deep historical understanding, Hayes entirely reorients our perspective on our times by arguing that the public's loss of trust in thefederal government, corporate America, andthe media has led to a crisis of authority that threatens to engulf not just our politics but our day-to-day lives."
