Publisher Comments:

What is power? In Power: The Hidden Instinct, author David Bleviss reshapes the definition of this complex, yet often overused word. Bleviss asserts that the desire for power is instinctual and that anyone with will and desire can possess it.

Bleviss began developing his ideas about power from an early age. As a young adult, he traveled to Palestine in 1947 to participate in the formation of the new state of Israel. Moving from a society invested in socialist idealism to capitalism helped to form many of Bleviss's ideas about power and its uses.

In uncovering the meaning and uses of power, Bleviss explains power as both a science and an art. He believes that in the desire for power to make things happen, men and women seldom fully understand the underlying processes. Power: The Hidden Instinct assists readers to develop a richer appreciation of the use of language and a more specific understanding of individual motivations and behaviors related to 'the art of powering.'

Bleviss takes the reader beyond such clichés as 'power lunch' to a level that reveals how we fit into the social, economic, and political power forces of a larger society.
