Power and the Power Simulation: Then and Now
Bolman, Lee; Deal, Terrence E.
Journal of Management Education, v41 n5 p627-633 Oct 2017
Lee Bolman and Terrence Deal think of how much has changed since the era of innocence when they first published "A Simple But Powerful Power Simulation"--before the advent of cell phones, personal computers, the Internet, e-mail, Facebook, and Twitter. So much has changed, and yet the fundamentals of human behavior, social interaction, and organizational dynamics have endured, as they have for centuries. This is especially true about power, a prevailing issue chock full of ripe paradoxical mysteries: its sources, uses, abuses, how to get it, and how to defend against its destructive consequences. Whether in two-party relationship or at the level of a massive nation-state, power reigns as a central ubiquitous puzzle. The authors turn to both ancient and modern sources such as Shakespeare, Machiavelli, Tolstoy, Kissinger, Dilenschneider, and Thatcher for insights into power and its discontents.
