A Question of Power (Paperback)
No question more immediately confronts radical activists than the question of power. What is it? What are its institutional, cultural, and psychological bases? What is the relationship between power, oppression, and hierarchies? Can power be used for emancipatory ends? This book is an activist attempt to answer the question.
From the perspective of social ecology, Eirik Eiglad discusses not only how we can confront power, but how it relates to participatory democracy. Any new politics for empowerment, he argues, must address the question of power.
