The power cube

John Gaventa elaborates on his previous discussion of quiescence and the three dimensions of power with an introduction of the power cube, a rubik’s analogy he and his colleagues developed to illustrate even more dimensions at play. He explains that in addition to the concept of invisible power at work in society, it’s imperative also to understand society’s spectrum of spaces and how that might affect who has power where/when, as well as to consider all levels of power in a global system.
