Dread going to work

Fear for the future

Social power is necessary for human health. Author and physician Susan Rosenthal reached this conclusion after decades of research, observation, and activism. In Power and Powerlessness, she explains that most people lack the healthy and fulfilling lives they deserve because they are kept powerless and mistakenly accept this state of affairs as natural or self-inflicted.

As a medical psychotherapist, Rosenthal is immersed in powerlessness every day- people seek her help because they feel powerless to relieve their own suffering, and she feels powerless to change the social conditions that cause their pain. When she explains this, the usual response is, Why didn't anyone tell me this before?

Written for a popular audience, Power and Powerlessness answers four basic questions: What's going on? How did this happen? Why do we put up with it? What will it take?

An uncommon work...penetrates beneath the surface...well researched and gripping ...deserves to be widely read.
