Summary and Info
A THEORY OF POWER In his penetrating analysis of the structure of power and the human condition, Jeff Vail unravels the functioning of our world and proposes a core concept of patterns of power-relationships. This historical critique of hierarchy sweeps from anthropology and psychology to economics and politics, ultimately presenting a model for a sustainable, human-compatible future. A Theory of Power is THE most innovative approach to anarchist theory in a generation, breaking free from the chains of past dogma and integrating the most current knowledge of the functioning of our world.Praise for A Theory of Power:"Very rich, stimulating and ambitious... I salute your important work!"--John Zerzan, anarchist philosopher, author of Elements of Refusal, Future Primitive and Running on Emptiness"Fascinating"--Noam Chomsky, author of Hegemony or Survival, described by the New York Times as "arguably the most important intellectual alive."
