    Beschreibung: Wraps. Zustand: fair to good. Presumed First Edition, First printing. 165 Pages. Wraps. Tables. Notes. Bibliography. Covers soiled. Cover and spine edges worn. small tear at spine, pencil initials rear cover. This is one of the Hoover Institute Studies, Series B: Elites, No. 5. Ithiel de Sola Pool (October 26, 1917 - March 11, 1984) was a revolutionary figure in the field of social sciences. Pool led groundbreaking research on technology and its effects on society. He coined the term "convergence" to describe the effect of various scientific innovations on society in a futuristic world. In the course of his career, he would make startlingly accurate predictions about technology and society. In Pool's 1983 book, Technologies of Freedom he described the modes of technology. Digital electronics present convergence between historically separated modes of communication. Theater, news events, and speaking are all increasingly delivered electronically. These modes of communicating ideas are becoming one single grand system. The author argues that the satellite armies (Czechoslovakia, Poland, Romania, Hungary, and China) will not be absorbed into the Russian army, nor the satellites into the Soviet Union. Includes a press release from Stanford University Press about this book. In the academic year 1952-53 a group of scholars at the Hoover Library strove to learn something about the social structure of modern military institutions by applying the technique of elite analysis to the leadership of a number of armies. Few institutions of comparable influence have been as little studied by social scientists as have armed forces. The present volume is a report on a particularly little known group of armies, those of the satellites. It is an analysis of biographical data on their general officers. The analysis was done in 1951-1952. Except in the chapter on China, no changes in the text have been made since its completion shortly after the fall of Beria. In the Chinese chapter we have simply cut some illustrative material which derived much of its interest from the fact that it gave current information on who held what posts. With a major reorganization of the Chinese government in the fall of 1954, that became passé. The conclusions, however, have been left in full view. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 13293
