Elite Communication: A Suggested Perspective for Communication Studies Scholars.
Mandly, Charles R., Jr.
Noting that societies are inherently elitist in their structuring, this paper argues that a greater understanding of society and the communication process can be gained by comprehending the nature of communication among the elite and from the elite to the nonelite. It attempts to provide a theoretical foundation for the investigation of elite communication, which is lacking in the current literature in the field. It also offers an analysis of David Halberstam's "The Best and the Brightest" to illuminate the significance of the elite mythos. (Author/FL)
