Twilight of the Elites: America After Meritocracy by Christopher Hayes
Twilight of the Elites: America After Meritocracy

Salvaje, August 4, 2012

I absolutely loved this detailed account of the state of American meritocracy and its influence in many aspects of our life from education, to the war in Iraq, and the widening gap between the 1% and the 99%. I also appreciated Hayes description of American elitism in its many forms and literally could not put this book down once I started. I am going to make sure my friends and colleagues read this work!
