This balanced and informative analysis of the Trilateral Commission and related private international relations councils argues that "hegemony" should not be weighed in terms of unilateral power but through the influence of ideas and policies espoused by transnational elite groups. The discussion is mercifully free of the polemical, conspiratorial assumptions behind many studies of this subject.
