Power Is Knowledge (and Vice Versa): A Commentary on "Winning Some and Losing Some: A Social Relations Approach to Social Dominance in Toddlers."
Vaughn, Brian E.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v45 n2 p215-25 Apr 1999
Identifies conceptual and methodological strengths of Hawley and Little's article and commends the pedagogical value of the approach taken. Notes that questions still unanswered concern the validity of adult caregiver perceptions of social dominance, the relationship between competition hierarchies and hierarchies based on directed agonism, and the relationship between social dominance and social competence in young children.
