Authors: Jason L. Powell (Associate Dean of Faculty, Coventry University, UK) 
Book Description:
This book explores the concept of power and emotion. The book begins by examining the conceptual problems and issues associated with theorizing power drawing from classical, modern and contemporary social science perspectives. It moves to assess the issues of power elites and relationship to how society is governed. To further examine, this attention moves to global power and the impact that has on power, politics and decision making processes. The book explores power and communication drawing from critical theory and the possibilities for social change. Finally, the book explores the power of emotion and its differential and contested understanding requires a new appropriation of linking what C. Wright Mills calls 'personal troubles' and 'public issues'. (Imprint: Novinka)
