I've read a lot recently, and

I've read a lot recently, and will list a couple I think are informative and worth reading.

On Power: The Natural History of Its Growth by Bertrand de Jouvenel

The American Democrat by James Fenimore Cooper

The Revolt of the Masses by José Ortega y Gasset

The Present Age: Progress and Anarchy in Modern America by Robert Nisbet
Incidentally, I recommend two additional works by this author:
The Quest for Community and
Twilight of Authority

Overthrow: America's Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq by Stephen Kinzer

Finally, The Illusions of Egalitarianism by John Kekes

What the heck, one more: The Vintage Mencken

malo periculosam libertatem quam quietum servitium

I am an aristocrat. I love liberty; I hate equality. - John Randolph of Roanoke
