The accelerating spread of Mammon worship and commercialization of science, technology and academia, along with crumbling traditional norms have together led to increasing abuse of power in all spheres of life. This book examines the global problem from multiple perspectives.

The essays focus on the manner in which people have used power for managing individual, social and environmental aspects of life. The theme of power is explored in a philosophical and spiritual vein, yet from a corporate viewpoint for better human resource management.

The book presents various positions on the use of power in society by drawing upon the experiences of eminent persons from economics, philosophy, education, management, as well as the executive, judiciary, press, and politics. Contributors include Madhu Dandavate, V. R. Krishna Iyer, Shankar Roychowdhury and Rajmohan Gandhi, and the distinguished Indonesian scholar Gedong Bagoes Oka.

Students of management and philosophy, practicing managers, HRD professionals and general readers will find the book a thought-provoking read.
