Sendes vanligvis innen 5-15 dager
Addressing an issue of central concern in social life, this authoritative book examines how having or lacking power influences the way individuals and groups think, feel, and act. Leading international experts comprehensively review classic and contemporary research with an eye toward bridging gaps across theories and levels of analysis. Compelling topics include the evolutionary bases of power; its effects on physiological processes, cognitive abilities, and health; what sorts of people are given power; when, how, and whom power corrupts; and power dynamics in gender, social class, and ethnic relations. The integrative concluding chapter presents a cogent agenda for future research. The book will be of use for social and personality psychologists and will also serve as a supplemental text in courses in the psychology of prejudice, psychology of gender, and psychology of ethnic and racial minorities.
