Summary Read First Chapter image missing

The authors represent the cutting edge of current research into the concept of power. Among the topics discussed are power in social theory, feminist conceptions of power, power and sexuality, modes of oppression and domination, the significance of Foucault's theory of power, and power in market transactions. Included are contributions by Amelie Oksenberg Rorty, Terence Ball, Jeffrey Isaac, Thomas McCarthy, Gayatri Spivak, Iris Marion Young, Jean Baker Miller, Nancy C. M. Hartsock, Samuel Bowles, Herbert Gintis, and Roger S. Gottlieb.

"The topic of power is one that brings together many of the most exciting contemporary intellectual discourses. This collection as a whole, by its diversity, demonstrates the complexity and multiple ramifications of the topic. The list of contributors is extremely impressive, as is the range of perspectives and disciplines they bring to the topic. These are well known, highly respected scholars who represent such diverse approaches as analytic philosophy, critical theory, feminist theory, economic theory, and psychological theory. My sense is that this anthology is going to be a very big seller." -- Linda Nicholson, State University of New York at Albany

"There are quite a few books on the nature of power, but none to my knowledge that collect such a diverse group of essays by well-known scholars. This book is a collection of original, persuasive, and very well written essays. Unlike many collections on a single subject, Wartenberg's includes only essays that focus directly and exclusively on the subject matter. This book will be very useful to those who teach political theory, as well as to feminist scholars." -- Marion Smiley, University of Wisconsin

Thomas E. Wartenberg is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Mount Holyoke College. He is the author of The Forms of Power: From Domination to Transformation.
