élite

literally ‘the best or most talented members of society’ (e.g. educational élite), however in sociology the term most usually refers to political élites. Here, the assumption of ÉLITE THEORY has been that a division between élites and MASSES is an inevitable feature of any complex modern society, and that the aspirations of radical democrats that the people as a whole could rule is mistaken.
