Mladen Lazić (ed.)

The book is a direct continuation of an earlier volume on the economic elite, complementing thus the sociological insight into the emergence of the new capitalist class in Serbia. A thorough analysis of the properties of the political segment of the ruling social stratum during the consolidation of the liberal-democratic order is based primarily on the results of the survey conducted in 2015, as well as on comparable findings of previous surveys (from 1989, 1993 and 2003). The chapters provide a detailed treatment of issues such as material status of members of this groups, recruitment patterns, value orientations, action potential, and so on.
