Rezension:

'It is a study bursting with interesting ideas as well as covering a rich sweep of empirical materials ... This book, like its predecessor, will become something of a sociological classic ... very few authors could have marshalled such diverse material in such a systematic , yet analytically precise way.' Anthony Giddens, New Stateman & Society

Vom Verlag:

This second volume of Michael Mann's analytical history of social power deals with power relations between the Industrial Revolution and the First World War, focusing on France, Great Britain, Hapsburg Austria, Prussia/Germany and the United States. Based on considerable empirical research it provides original theories of the rise of nations and nationalism, of class conflict, of the modern state and of modern militarism. While not afraid to generalise, it also stresses social and historical complexity. The author sees human society as 'a patterned mess' and attempts to provide a sociological theory appropriate to this. This theory culminates in the final chapter, an original explanation of the causes of the First World War.
