Social Power analysis is a useful lens through which system relationships can be examined and better understood. The use of a multidimensional model of social power reveals the dynamics of power and the hidden rules of social arrangements underlying the relationships between groups and systems. This highly engaging text guides the reader through an explanation of the dimensions and standards of social power; then the reader is provided with three recent examples of world events which are analyzed through a multi-dimensional model of social power. In case after case it becomes clear that systemic constraints have developed not by chance, but by design. True reform is possible because all organizations are dependent upon the acceptance and acquiescence of the individuals within the system. Control over the delicate balance of power belongs to all who are contained within the entire system, and those with a lessor share of power may shift the balance of power, if they act in concert. This guide was written for those who are dismayed by the lack of social justice in the world around them, and who want to understand the hidden rules protecting the status quo.
