Theories of Power and Domination
The Politics of Empowerment in Late Modernity
- Angus Stewart - London School of Economics and Political Science, UK
Cultural Theory | Political Sociology | Social Theory
A wonderful text. Highly recommended.
It is an informative and critical text on the multi-dimensions of power and domination and how they are operated in modern society. Students in sociology, cultural studies will find it very helpful and accessible.
Stewart’s analysis is a major contribution to the understanding of power and domination in late modernity. Importantly, following developments in critical theory, Stewart reasserts the necessary normative dimension of such theorising in relation to the composition and functioning of the public sphere. Stewarts work is essential reading for anyone interested in the possibility of practical politics of social transformation. I unhesitatingly recommend this work.
A book to refer back to in the future. A good intro on power perspectives is provided, with lengthy critical arguments.
Thank you very much for the inspection copy.That is a supplemental source for the main course and can be very helpful.
