Editorial Reviews

Bryan S. Turner
'This edited book by Stewart Clegg and Mark Haugaard, with twenty essay contributions from international scholars, is not a conventional easy reader but a handbook that offers many thought-provoking views of power...It traverses an enormous intellectual territory... and addresses many of the complex issues surrounding the visible, less visible and hidden aspects of power...The essays go way beyond superficial normative ideas of power into the strategic clarification of existing debates and new and challanging propositions surrounding power'

"Remarkable for its findings and its implications, this book looks at the centrality of power (which can be characterized as 'power over', 'power to,' 'power with') to life and at how people use or surrender to power."
John Urry
"I recommend it most strongly and think that it will be very useful indeed. A great addition to the literature."
