As DyeMoreThrough six successful editions of Power and Society, Thomas R. Dye has encouraged readers to pursue their interests in the social sciences by illustrating how important these disciplines are to understanding many conditions of our lives. As Dye introduces readers to the central concepts of sociology, anthropology, economics, political science, history, and psychology, he links elements of these disciplines through a dynamic and unifying theme: the manifestation of power in society.

With this idea in mind, readers gain a real sense of social scientists interests as they explore power in the context of social problems such as racism, sexism, poverty, crime, violence, urban decay, and international and ideological conflict. Dyes presentation includes analyses of social science research studies and the contributions of masters of social thought such as Bertrand Russell, Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud, and Martin Luther King, Jr.

Evocative discussions are enhanced with case studies and cross-national perspectives to highlight critical ideas, including the power and society theme. The approach of learning to understand power as an integral part of our social world continues with great impact in this seventh edition. Among the new topics readers will find how men and women view their relations today- evolutionary psychology: the mating game- the burdens of government debt- Native Americans: an historical overview- social scientists look at sex in America- treating mental illness- a brief history of the cold war- the long history of womens protests- sexual harassment and the law- and should we limit the terms of Congress members?
