Abstract:

Discreet Powerpresents an inside look at one of the primary agenda-setting organizations of our day. Drawing on an ethnographic study inside of the World Economic Forum, it unveils the inner workings of an organization that lives beyond traditional governance structures, but that is actively transforming global relations. The WEF represents a relatively new type of global power--and the fact that ""governance via knowledge, "" as opposed to formal authority, lies in our future.
