Product Description

About the Author

John Scott is Professor of Sociology at the University of Essex and the University of Bergen. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From the Back Cover

This far–reaching study gives a concise and coherent overview of the debates surrounding the analysis of social power. The concept of power is outlined, and its main dimensions are explored through consideration of various facets – command, pressure, constraint, discipline, protest, and interpersonal power. The book examines both the theoretical debates that have arisen and the kinds of empirical materials relevant to them.

Topics covered include the nature of the contemporary state, global economic power, world systems, business governance, professional power, social movements, and family dynamics.

Power will be an indispensable introduction for students and researchers in sociology, politics, and the social sciences generally.

Format: Paperback
For so many historical figures, attaining power has led to their downfall. Macchiavellis little book on power contains ideas from lessons learned from his life under the patronage of the de Medici family in 1500s Florence. We have all heard the phrase "The end justifies the means", well, this guy coined it and followed it to the letter. The fact that he survived a torrid part of history in a cloak and dagger profession perhaps validates this seemingly calous statement. For more thoughts from this great survivalists mind, buy this book.
