Description:

Paperback. 390 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.2in. x 0.9in.Daring, astute, and smart, The Nature of Power Struggles, is a powerfully revealing work of nonfiction. Author Montgomery Stewart examines our search for self and relationship and how it is often frustrated by competing beliefs, differing models of behavior, and our mixed motivations caused by fear and love. Stewart reveals the fragile nature of alliances that we create with others, along with the constant quest for fairness in our relationships in order to better understand this struggle. Within this framework, we are constantly dealing with how we all use our power to force, manipulate, and persuade others into action, and as a result, most individuals today are actively engaged in a struggle for power. This modern behavior by individuals and institutions drives how people commonly treat one another in various situations. With benchmark research and relevant case studies that highlight human dynamics in business, personal relationships, and cultural and religious expression, this rewarding expos shows how persons and groups historically struggle to get their footing in order to inevitably manipulate the system to get what they want. In twenty-four easy-to-read chapters with titles like The Subjective Nature of Fairness, Love, Respect, and Fear, and Moving between Social and Economic Classes, the author illustrates the reasons why Americans continue to struggle in their pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness, and the factors that contribute to this struggle. Stewart makes great strides in explaining how people operate and navigate their world. Ultimately sparking meaningful dialogue about the elements of conflict, this text also examines the brick wall many Americans face when it comes to exercising their rights so that they might accept what is fueled by human nature and what it is they can control.

About the Author: Montgomery Stewart received his Bachelor degree in management and MBA in finance from DePaul University before earning a law degree from the University of Notre Dame. In the past, he has worked in the banking, mortgage loan servicing, software development, and music production industries as a financial analyst, attorney, loan officer, contract manager, and temporary grunt trying to pay the rent. In all of these industries and endeavors he has observed common themes in terms of how people treat each other and struggle for power as they pursue their goals. Although he grew up in a Christian household and community, he considers himself a student of metaphysics. In this book he speaks as an observer and active participant in the power struggle. The Nature of Power Struggles is his first book.
