The term "politist" has been used but rarely. It means one versed in polity,
one who is particularly occupied with the affairs of the political community.
This writer introduces the term of necessity;
to fill a gap in the terminology of political science.
Pareto, for example, would have avoided many difficulties if he had
constructed a second term to avoid using "elite" ambiguously as (1)
those with the highest index of any given trait, (2) those psychologically
and socially fitted to govern a society. Dr. Gabriel Al mond and
Dr. Paul Lazarsfeld have been experimenting with the utility of the
concept "opinion leader," which certainly would be included in the term "politist"
