Example text

Even Dahl’s (1965, 1974) own conception of power is not necessarily grounded in a conflict of interests. Interestingly, Dahl’s classic work Who Governs (1974), as influential as it has been, has nonetheless been given insufficient credit as a thorough statement about the faces of power. Indeed, in Polsby’s (1980) well-known study of power, we glean some fairly compelling arguments suggesting that Dahl articulated three faces of power. Guzzini’s (1993) fusion concept of power as agent power and governance proposes a vision of power that also integrates various faces of power.

First, under international sources, nations must demonstrate a fundamental respect for international law, norms, regimes, and other institutions undergirding cooperation among nations. This commitment to “playing by the rules” in the service of the collective good generates an image of dependability, sensitivity, legitimacy, and a stance against violence. No more endearing posture can be contemplated in world affairs. This general orientation is the principal source of international soft power; the sources that follow are more specific manifestations of this general orientation.

The conventional view of power relations). The other three faces of power constitute meta-power relations. Bachrach and Baratz’ work has been designated as a second face of power. Barnett and Duvall’s (2005) typology of international power conflates much of this second face into their concept of institutional power. For a good survey of the work on agenda control, see Mueller (1997, 2003). The other two faces will be described below in the chapter. For an explanation and comparison of the four faces of power, see especially Digeser (1992), Berenskoetter (2007), and Barnett and Duvall (2005).
