New Class

Discipline: Economics, Political Science

Theory of elites in state socialist (communist) societies of the Yugoslav writer MILOVAN DJILAS (1911-1997).

Within state socialist societies a 'new class' of party officials - who exercise a command over resources similar to that exercised by capitalists - has arisen to frustrate the egalitarian intentions of the regimes' founders.
