A Sociological Study on the Oligarchical Tendencies of Modern Democracy", issued in 1911, which is an analysis on the internal organization evolving dynamics of the German Social-Democrat Party (SDP), to which the author was intensely attached for several years. The aim of this essay is hte sociological study of the leadership emergence, power psicology and the organizational oligarchical tendencies. In it all argumentation can be found on the impossibility of a very democratic operation in mass political parties, in contemporary societies, due to the validity, within them, of what he calls the Iron Law of Oligarchy.
