The sources of social power by Michael Mann( Book )

166 editions published between 1986 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,968 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Distinguishing four sources of power - ideological, economic, military and political - this series traces their interrelations throughout human history. This fourth volume covers the period from 1945 to the present, focusing on the three major pillars of post-war global order: capitalism, the nation-state system and the sole remaining empire of the world, the United States. In the course of this period, capitalism, nation-states and empires interacted with one another and were transformed. Mann's key argument is that globalization is not just a single process, because there are globalizations of all four sources of social power, each of which has a different rhythm of development. Topics include the rise and beginnings of decline of the American Empire, the fall or transformation of communism (respectively, the Soviet Union and China), the shift from neo-Keynesianism to neoliberalism, and the three great crises emerging in this period - nuclear weapons, the great recession and climate change
The dark side of democracy : explaining ethnic cleansing by Michael Mann( Book )

47 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive study of international ethnic cleansing provides in-depth coverage of its occurrences in Armenia, Nazi Germany, Cambodia, Yugoslavia, and Rwanda, as well as cases of lesser violence in early modern Europe and in contemporary India and Indonesia. After presenting a general theory of why serious conflict emerges and how it escalates into mass murder, Michael Mann offers suggestions on how to avoid such escalation in the future. Michael Mann is the author of Fascists (Cambridge, 2004) and The Sources of Social Power (Cambridge 1986). The Dark Side of Democracy is the most comprehensive study of ethnic cleansing
Fascists by Michael Mann( Book )

25 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fascists presents a new theory of fascism based on intensive analysis of the men and women who became fascists. It covers the six European countries in which fascism became most dominant: Italy, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Romania and Spain. It is the most comprehensive analysis of who fascists actually were, what beliefs they held, and what actions they committed. Through this evidence we see that fascism is merely the most extreme form of "nation-statism," which was the dominant political ideology of the twentieth century. Fascists argued that an "organic nation" and a strong state that was prepared to use violence to "knock heads together" could transcend the conflicts, especially the class conflicts, rending modern society. We also see the fascist core constituencies: social locations that were at the heart of the nation or closely connected to the state, and people who were accustomed to use violence as a means of solving social conflicts and who came from those sections of all social classes that were working outside the front lines of class conflict. The book suggests that fascism was essentially a product of post-World War I conditions in Europe and is unlikely to reappear in its classic garb in the future. Nonetheless, elements of its ideology remain relevant to modern conditions and are now reappearing, though mainly in different parts of the world."--BOOK JACKET
Incoherent empire by Michael Mann( Book )

31 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in 5 languages and held by 799 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book noted sociologist Michael Mann argues that the "new American imperialism" is actually little more than a new militarism. Dissecting the economic, political, military and ideological resources available to the US, Mann concludes that they are so uneven as to generate only an "incoherent Empire" and increasing world disorder." "The incoherent Empire is also analysed in action - in Afghanistan, in the war against terrorism, and against "rogue states," especially North Korea and Iraq. Its strategies seemed doomed only to create more international terrorists and increase the desire of the rogues to acquire weapons of mass destruction; they also provoke a virtual "crusade" against Muslims. The world will become more and more dangerous, argues Mann, unless the US abandons this trajectory and adopts the more realistic global leadership strategies laid out in this book."--Jacket

Consciousness and action among the Western working class by Michael Mann( Book )

28 editions published between 1973 and 1986 in 3 languages and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book makes a comparative analysis of working-class consciousness in Britain, France, Italy and the United States and seeks to answer the question of whether the working class today is a potentially revolutionary force in the West. In France and Italy class conflict and working-class consciousness have reached a higher level of intensity than in Britain or the United States. Both Marxist and functionalist explanations for this are discussed, special attention being paid to the recent French Marxism of Althusser, Mallet and Touraine. Class consciousness is examined as a dynamic process by analyzing the "explosion of consciousness" which often seems to occur in turbulent strike situations. The author concludes that class conflict is more complex than either group of theorists suggest. Working-class consciousness and the relationship between labor and capital are found to be dualistic and fundamentally unstable. Revolutionary potential is greatest in situations of uneven economic and social development when the capital-labor contradiction may be reinforced by other social conflicts. This means that the Marxist claim that the working-class carries in itself the power to be a class for itself must be rejected
Social power and the Turkish state by Tim Jacoby( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book focuses on the historical sociology of the Turkish state. It seeks to compare the development of the Ottoman/Turkish state with similar processes of large-scale historical change in Europe identified by Michael Mann in The Sources of Social Power. In this Mann developed an historiographic model based on four overlapping power networks (political, ideological, economic and military). Having spent the first chapter giving an account of Mann's analysis, the text relates each of these networks to developmental patterns apparent in Turkey before concluding with an explanation of the main areas of continuity and change and a critical consideration of Mann's rubric." "In this way the book analyses the process of state-building which has occurred in Turkey from the changes developing during the Ottoman Empire to the organisation of the modern-day government. It focuses on issues concerning the state's relationship with civil society, particularly those that arise from the interaction between the Turkish majority and non-Turkish minorities. It traces the contours of Turkey's 'modernisation' with the intention of formulating a fresh way to approach state development in countries on the global economic periphery, particularly those attempting to effect closer ties with Northern markets. It also highlights issues of social changes pertinent to states grappling with issues relating to political Islam, minority identities and irredentist dissent."--Jacket

The sources of social power by Michael Mann( Book )

64 editions published between 1986 and 2012 in English and German and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Distinguishing four sources of power in human societies - ideological, economic, military and political - The Sources of Social Power traces their interrelations throughout human history. In this first volume, Michael Mann examines interrelations between these elements from neolithic times, through ancient Near Eastern civilizations, the classical Mediterranean age and medieval Europe, up to just before the Industrial Revolution in England. It offers explanations of the emergence of the state and social stratification; of city-states, militaristic empires and the persistent interaction between them; of the world salvation religions; and of the particular dynamism of medieval and early modern Europe. It ends by generalizing about the nature of overall social development, the varying forms of social cohesion and the role of classes and class struggle in history. First published in 1986, this new edition includes a new preface in volume 1 by the author examining the impact and legacy of the work"

The sources of social power by Michael Mann( )

18 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Distinguishing four sources of power in human societies - ideological, economic, military and political - The Sources of Social Power traces their interrelations throughout human history. This second volume deals with power relations between the Industrial Revolution and the First World War, focusing on France, Great Britain, Hapsburg Austria, Prussia/Germany and the United States. Based on considerable empirical research, it provides original theories of the rise of nations and nationalism, of class conflict, of the modern state and of modern militarism. While not afraid to generalize, it also stresses social and historical complexity. Michael Mann sees human society as 'a patterned mess' and attempts to provide a sociological theory appropriate to this, his final chapter giving an original explanation of the causes of the First World War. First published in 1993, this new edition of Volume 2 includes a new preface by the author examining the impact and legacy of the work
