The Sources of Social Power: Volume 1, A History of Power from the Beginning to AD 1760, 1. Empire and globalization are central topics in the final two volumes of the work

The Sources of Social Power: Volume 1, A History of Power from the Beginning to AD 1760, 1). Mann doesn't try to reduce any of the periods he considers to a simple organizing theme - "modernization," "colonialism," "resistance. Empire and globalization are central topics in the final two volumes of the work. This reflects Mann's historical judgment that the past century or so has been structured by the internationalizing pressures of economic and military interest to create broader systems of control. I'm looking forward to reading these final two volumes carefully.

Distinguishing four sources of power - ideological, economic, military, and political - this series traces their interrelations throughout human history. This fourth volume of Michael Mann's analytical history of social power covers the period from 1945 to the present, focusing on the three major pillars of postwar 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.

Husband bought this for school. Not sure about it.

A good book, but not a very good author

Turgid historical sociology filled with gross polemical flourishes. Example: on p. 205 in his chapter on the fall of the Soviet Union, the author uses some U. N. population statistics to point to a dramatic fall in population in post-Soviet Russia. He concludes: "The atrocities of markets are not so visible as those of plans, but the suffering and the death rates may be similar."
To grasp just how crude this reasoning is, ask yourself this question: if there were adjustment problems in South Africa in the immediate transition from apartheid to multi-racial democracy, how likely is it that an academic would remain in good standing if s/he blamed the African National Congress rather than the distortions in apartheid itself for those adjustment problems?
