Power Play - The hidden role of power in our lives and relationships - Professor Raj Persaud - Gresham College Lectures

Power is wielded against us all the time. It is not just our bosses or work colleagues who seem to inveigle upon us - but politicians and the local council. We don't like to think of intimate relationships in this way but power is at play even in our marriages - and our children have been known to manipulate. Can a power analysis of relationships help us better understand the human condition? Why does our personal power appear to be ebbing away? If we are losing it, who is winning at our expense? All our lectures are available for free download from the Gresham College website, in video, audio or text formats: http://www.gresham.ac.uk Gresham College professors and guest speakers have been giving free public lectures in central London since 1597.
