Fleming develops the idea of a following as the basis of social power and describes the process of social control from the viewpoint of injustice. The second half of the book deals with modern society and includes analysis of competitiveness, social mobility, the division of wealth, and media and politics. He criticizes the clichZs and dogmas of orthodox social science, claiming that, unlike value-neutral sociology, his theory is not marred by unstated moral assumptions. Fleming also draws on sociological and cultural material including discussions of Bacon, Hume, Rousseau, Mills, Engels, Shaw, Lloyd, and Veblen, among others. This book will be of interest to sociology students and their professors, as well as scholars interested in peace/conflict studies.
