Abstract

One MR reader, a graduate student of sociology at one of our larger universities, writes to the editors that "in the December and January issues your editorials used the term 'ruling class' no less than 18 times." He thinks that "by using this term so repetitiously you lay yourselves open to the serious accusation of surface-scratching analysis only." Don't we, he asks, owe MR readers "a probing analysis of a concept that is so complex and crucial"?
