Description - Three Faces of Power by Kenneth Ewart Boulding

The author of this treatise identifies three broad types of power: threat power, economic power and integrative power. Threat power is defined as based on the power to destroy, and particularly important in political life. Economic power, the author believes, derives from the power to produce and exchange goods, and depends on the changing distribution of property ownership. The third concept, integrative power, is shown as resting on relationships such as love, respect, community and identity. The text argues that threat power should not be seen as fundamental, since it is not effective unless reinforced by economic and integrative power. The author provides a challenging perspective to the concept of power, and lays the groundwork for future debates.
