In the quest for understanding and mastery of power, Machiavelli is the expert. And this book is the distillation of his wisdom. Like the other titles in Profile's 'illuminations' series, Power by Machiavelli encapsulates the ideas of one of the greatest thinkers who is still as relevant today as he was 500 years ago. Intelligent, driven by ambition, Machiavelli was a senior civil servant and diplomat in sixteenth-century Florence. This pocket-size introduction to Machiavelli's tried-and-tested wisdom focuses on a subject of timeless fascination. 'executions and punishments should be sudden and performed all at once. Rewards on the other hand should be drop by drop, so their benefits may be spread out over a long while.'

From the Back Cover:

This far-reaching study gives a concise and coherent overview of the debates surrounding the analysis of social power. The concept of power is outlined, and its main dimensions are explored through consideration of various facets – command, pressure, constraint, discipline, protest, and interpersonal power. The book examines both the theoretical debates that have arisen and the kinds of empirical materials relevant to them.

Topics covered include the nature of the contemporary state, global economic power, world systems, business governance, professional power, social movements, and family dynamics.

Power will be an indispensable introduction for students and researchers in sociology, politics, and the social sciences generally.

About the Author:

John Scott is Professor of Sociology at the University of Essex and the University of Bergen.
