Some first-year sociology students might think that class, status and party refer to some kind of elite celebration. But in the world of the German sociologist Max Weber, party is a term that sometimes has been described as power. However, the idea is more nuanced than the mere idea of power.

Party in Weberian thought refers to the social ranking and related power gained by holding a political office or by associating with those holding such an office.
