Power and Interpersonal Relations.
Jacobson, Wally D.
The purpose of this book is to examine the nature and operation of power in interpersonal relations. Designed for general use in communication, political science, business, and the social sciences, this book shows how power operates and affects us in everyday encounters. The first section of the book is an historical overview of the influences of power in small group behavior. The second section reviews the evolution of power and the role of power as an influencing agent in interpersonal interaction. A discussion of power as it relates to individual attributes and attitudes, group attributes, interaction and situation, and leadership and group performance is presented in the third section. The final section applies the previously discussed principles to modern institutions. Each chapter includes a list of suggested readings. (Author/LG)
