Hunter returns to Atlanta and reveals how the power structure of the 1950s has changed during the 1960s and 1970s. By combining scholarly analysis, personal reminiscences, observation, and social prescription, he provides a companion work that is as important as its predecessor. He compares the earlier circles of top leadership with the new men of power and examines substantive social change in power-structure relations, including the roles played by blacks and by white real-estate developers.
