"Domhoff exposes an America that few are taught about in school. A nation where wealthy and corporate interests have effectively controlled economic policies since 1938... Domhoff's teachings in Who Rules America? are more relevant than ever in 2022." Randy Shaw, "Who Rules America? Corporate and Wealthy Interests Still Reign", Beyond Chron (https://beyondchron.org/who-rules-america-the-same-forces-since-new-deal/)
