Researching Power Elite History of Criminality

After posting my most recent LRC blog, “Underworld” and “Overworld,” I have received several inquiries as to the sources which has led me after fifty years of study to my staggering conclusion. Basically it all broadly falls under the penumbra of Power Elite Analysis (sometimes referred to as Libertarian Class Analysis or Establishment Studies).  Here are key LRC articles I have written which outline these concepts:

Who Rules America: Power Elite Analysis, the Deep State, and American History

Hidden History: Where Organized Crime and Government Meet

Power Elite Analysis — The Necessity To Question Authority

Libertarian Class Analysis

Power Elite Analysis: The Rockefeller World Empire

Over the decades there have been crucial individuals whose pioneering research illuminated and guided me. Some of these exemplary persons have been Murray N. Rothbard, Walter E. Grinder, Carl Oglesby, Carroll Quigley, James H. Billington, Antony Sutton, Peter Dale Scott, Patrick M. Wood, Phillip H. Burch Jr., G. William Domhoff, David M. Hart, James Burnham, John McConaughy, Ferdinand Lundberg, James Corbett, Whitney Webb, and many more.

Everyone can look forward with great anticipation concerning Patrick Newman’s brilliant new work, Cronyism: Liberty versus Power in Early America, 1607–1849 (which I was privileged to read in an advance .pdf copy).  Available October 2021 at the Mises Bookstore and online retailers. Pre-order your copy today.

In my personal library in my study at my home I have roughly 3000 books. Here are several Amazon book lists of volumes which have assisted me in my exploratory research:
