In Power and Control, the authors assert that the absence or abundance of control by individuals causes problems in relationships, political systems, and international relations. The book deals with the relationship between power and control as it affects individuals and nations. Through the use of Experienced Control Theory, the authors illustrate how control varies as a function of different contexts, including situations involved in work stress, gangs, road rage, domestic violence, schoolyard killings, serial killings, hate crimes, and war. They argue that understanding control balance provides the tools for learning responsible behavior. Built on the foundation of published research that spans more than 35 years, Power and Control offers a compass to individuals, families, and nations to find alternatives to violence.
