Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(11), 972. Reviews the book, The daily power game by Mauk Mulder (see record 1979-07481-000). In the Dutch language, to slur a passage is to “foezle,” which is precisely what Mulder has not done. With clarity, vigor, and thoroughness he gives us some much needed tools for thinking about power. His 15 propositions, exemplified by everyday experience, grounded in research, and made relevant to current struggles between haves and have-nots, turn on proposition 5–that the smaller the gap between the more and less powerful, the stronger the tendency on the part of the less powerful to reduce the gap.
