I love Gaventa's no nonsense approach to power. Fantastic use of a case study to work through the third dimension of power.

    Poor job of converting to e-format.

    It looks like the book was computer-scanned, with only minimal editing.

    Errors abound in the e-book format.

    In power and powerlessness: quiescence and rebellion in an appalachian valley, john gaventa applies his rather technical three dimensions of power model to understand reasons for dormancy and obstacles to rebellion among residents in a central appalachian region of great social inequality, namely the clear fork valley of east tennessee.

    The first dimension of power is the notion popularly advanced by pluralists: namely, that one group wields power over another and gets it to do something it would not otherwise do.

    In this dimension, powerlessness and lack of participation originates from individual choice and reflects a relative contentment with the status quo.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    The second dimension of power is concerned with control of who is actually involved in power negotiation and what issues are addressed.

    Others attribute it to elites in charge of political institutions who have neglected the region or offered it broken promises.
