The SAGE Handbook of Power by Stewart R. Clegg

Internationally acclaimed, Stewart R Clegg and Mark Haugaard have joined forces to select a collection of papers written by scholars with global reputations for excellence. These papers bridge different conceptual and theoretical positions and draw on many disciplines, including politics, sociology and cultural studies. The sweep and richness of the resulting handbook will help readers contextualise and grow their understanding of this dynamic and important subject area.

The SAGE Handbook of Power Reviews

'This edited book by Stewart Clegg and Mark Haugaard, with twenty essay contributions from international scholars, is not a conventional easy reader but a handbook that offers many thought-provoking views of power...It traverses an enormous intellectual territory... and addresses many of the complex issues surrounding the visible, less visible and hidden aspects of power...The essays go way beyond superficial normative ideas of power into the strategic clarification of existing debates and new and challanging propositions surrounding power'
Judy Johnston
Faculty of Business, University of Technology Sydney
-- Bryan S. Turner
"Remarkable for its findings and its implications, this book looks at the centrality of power (which can be characterized as 'power over', 'power to,' 'power with') to life and at how people use or surrender to power." -- L. Braude
"I recommend it most strongly and think that it will be very useful indeed. A great addition to the literature."
-- John Urry
