Description - The Use and Abuse of Power by John A. Bargh
From relationships between individuals to conflicts within organizations and between nations, power differences have been and continue to be part of virtually every human interaction. Their range of effects spans extreme abuse to selfless benevolence. In this volume on the psychological and interpersonal bases of power abuse, the work of prominent researchers is brought together to provide a panoramic understanding of this complex phenomenon. Focusing on power as a cause of social ills, and remedies to prevent corruption and abuse, The Use and Abuse of Power is unique in bringing together different levels of analysis from the intrapsychic to the interpersonal, the group and organization level, and governmental and intergovernmental level. By gaining a broad scope of social power as seen through a variety of research perspectives, it may be possible to realize the extent of its effects and unearth fundamental elements of power that hold true across seemingly disparate areas of research. The volume will be important reading for researchers and students in psychology, management, sociology and other social sciences, as well as for business and political leaders.
