All Rise: Somebodies, Nobodies, and the Politics of Dignity by Robert W. Fuller discusses rankism, or the abuse of power inherent in rank.  Fuller makes the case that rankism is the chief remaining obstacle to achieving liberty and justice for all, and shows how we can root it out--all without proposing to do away with the rank system.  Rather, Fuller argues for a "dignitarian" society in which rankism is no longer tolerated.
