"Power and the Social" looks at the different ways power has been theorised from Hobbes to Giddens and at the ways in which the theories have been applied. By bringing together theory and substantive analysis, this invaluable introductory text provides a clear and imaginative account of power and power relations. Processes and structures of power are analysed within key areas of sociological concern, including:
* the history of power
* race
* gender
* class
* sexuality
* the spatial and visual.
The book looks at a wide range of cases from across the globe, including the 'underclass' in Britain, the power of the military in Latin America, the untouchables in India and the politics of new reproductive technologies.
