In this short essay, Professor Hennessy examines the rise of meritocracy as a concept and the persistence of the shadowy notion of an establishment. He asks whether these elusive descriptors still have explanatory power in understanding British society and institutions, and why they continue to fascinate us. This is the first of the Haus Curiosities, reviving the topical pamphlet as a stimulant to politico-literary discussion.
