9780292720138: Energy and Structure: Theory of Social Power
Críticas:

"The essay will be rewarding reading for students of social power irrespective of their disciplinary leaning. Most important, it integrates serious thinking about energy and social change, reaching some disquieting conclusions to which attention must be paid." - Sociology

Reseña del editor:

Richard N. Adams argues that social power affects humanity's approach to ecological, economic, and political problems, directing people to seek solutions which are often deceptively shortsighted.

Descripción University of Texas Press, United States, 1975. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 226 x 150 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.All social structures are essentially power structures dependent on energy. The concept of power and the role of energy in social organization are crucial and timely concerns, especially in light of the current apprehension about future energy resources. In Energy and Structure, Richard N. Adams argues that social power affects humanity s approach to ecological, economic, and political problems, directing people to seek solutions that are often deceptively shortsighted. Adams, an anthropologist, proposes that social power is directly derived from control over energy processes. He identifies how power and mentalistic structures constitute fundamental determinants that shape the lives of people at all stages of cultural development, forcing them to accept alternatives often far removed from their desires. His central thesis is that the amount of power in any system varies with the amount of control exercised over the environment and that increasing power and control lead to increasing centralization of decision-making, social marginalization, and environmental despoliation. Thus the more highly developed societies, by virtue of their greater controls, are responsible for the greater ultimate subordination and destruction of human potential, as humanity combines technological advances with a growing inability to exercise good judgment with respect to our own survival. Energy and Structure begins with an examination of the basic theory of social power-what it is and how it works. Adams defines and differentiates between the concepts of power and control, authority and legitimacy, power domains and levels. He then examines the underlying metatheory of energetic and mentalistic structures and provides an analytic model of the evolution of power, from the primitive band to modern nations. He predicts the emergence of supranational blocs and discusses other future possibilities. Throughout, his theoretical points are solidly supported by examples drawn from a wide range of cultures.
