Description - Power and the Social by Sallie Westwood
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. Within key areas of sociological concern, including race, gender, class, sexuality, the spatial and visual, the processes and structures of power are analysed as well as the way power functions in everyday life.
