"This volume takes theory and research on power a huge step forward. Coverage ranges from basic mechanisms and conceptual issues to consequences of power. It spans multiple levels of analysis, looking at how power is implicated in social perception, social interaction, and intergroup relations. This book synthesizes research in the field to date and will define the study of power in social psychology for years to come." - Miles Hewstone, Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford, UK "Guinote and Vescio have assembled a distinguished collection of scholars to offer a current and comprehensive analysis. The volume sheds new light on a traditionally central topic in psychology. The quality of the chapters is excellent, and collectively the volume provides new theoretical perspectives and insights. This well-structured volume will make a significant and lasting contribution." - John F. Dovidio, Department of Psychology, Yale University, USA "Quite possibly the single most indispensable work on the dynamics of power. Approaching the problem of power from the vantage points of diverse theories, the contributors illuminate the workings of power - how it is understood in the minds of those with and without power, how it guides the actions of individuals and groups, and how it is woven into the fabric of society. A 'must read' for students and scholars alike, this book makes clear why, as Bertrand Russell observed many years ago, power is the fundamental concept of social science." - Mark Snyder, McKnight Presidential Chair in Psychology and Director, Center for the Study of the Individual and Society, University of Minnesota, USA
