Coercion, Paperback / softback Book


Coercion, it seems, like poverty and prejudice, has always been with us.

Political thinkers and philosophers have been arguing its more direct and personal consequences for centuries.

Today, at a point in history marked by dramatic changes and challenges to the existing military, political, and social order, coercion is more at the forefront of political activity than ever before.

While the modern state has no doubt freed man from some of the forms of coercion by which he has traditionally been plagued, we hear now from all sectors of society complaints about systematic coerciveness-not only on the national and international levels, but on the individual level as well.
