Michael Mann is one of the most influential sociologists of recent decades. His work has had a major impact in sociology, history, political science, international relations and other social science disciplines. His main work, The Sources of Social Power, of which two of three volumes have been completed, provides an all-encompassing account of the history of power from the beginnings of stratified societies to present day. Recently he has published two major works, Fascists and The Dark Side of Democracy. Yet unlike other contemporary social thinkers, Mann's work has not, until now, been systematically and critically assessed. This volume assembles a group of distinguished scholars to take stock, both of Mann's overall method and of his account of particular periods and historical cases. It also contains Mann's reply where he answers his critics and forcefully restates his position. This is a unique and provocative study for scholars and students alike.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... an intellectual biography of Mann that illuminates the evolving political goals underpinning his scholarship; it provides a progress report by his peers on the success of the enterprise to date, as well as Mann's response to his critics; and it furnishes clues about how the project will further develop.' Journal of Power
"This collection is as multi-dimensional and finely nuanced as Mann's historical analysis" -Jeffrey J. Cormier, Canadian Journal of Sociology Online
