Domination and the arts of resistance

0 Ungluers have Faved this Work
Confrontations between the powerless and the powerful are laden with deception - the powerless feign deference and the powerful subtly assert their mastery. Using examples from the literature, history, and politics of cultures around the world, the renowned social scientist James C. Scott offers a penetrating discussion both of the public roles played by the powerful and the powerless and the mocking, vengeful tone they display offstage. Scott examines the ideological resistance of subordinate groups. His landmark work will revise our understanding of subordination, resistance, hegemony, folk culture, and the ideas behind revolt.
