Description

"The subject of this book is power in American society or, specifically, the relationship of power to social structure, political consciousness, and powerlessness: how and for whom power is organized and what its institutionalized roots are; how power serves interest and how it defines interest; why certain social alternatives are chosen and others ignored; how change and protest are contained; how in the face of all inequities and abuses the prevailing social order maintains itself."
