Designed as a basic text for an introductory interdisciplinary social science course, this volume introduces undergraduates to central concepts in anthropology, psychology, sociology, political science, economics, and history. Particular emphasis is placed on the nature and uses of power in society. Contemporary case studies—such as an examination of American military power in Gulf Wars I and II—serve to illustrate the themes explored. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
