Nonii, võimuhuvilised, siinviidatu võiks küll ületada mõnedki muud tegemised, sest raskekahurvägi on mõtteid vahetamas Mark Haugaardi nelja võimu dimensiooni üle. Et mitte rikkuda lugemisrõõmu, siis siin vaid igalt osaliselt üks vihje.

Mark Haugaard:

The book is a work of both sociological and normative theory. By sociological theory I refer to the fundamental problems of social order, including: how is it that in society made of individuals exercising power-to and power–over agency results in a society that is surprisingly ordered? […] By normative theory: what kind of society should we live in?

Amy Allen:

And yet Haugaard goes way beyond a synthesis of the existing power literature to offer a distinctive and original contribution. Standing on the shoulders of Steven Lukes’s massively influential three-dimensional analysis of power, Haugaard’s account conceptualizes power across four dimensions: agency (1D), structure (2D), system of thought (3D), and social ontology (4D).

Isaac Reed:

It is thus important to recognize how, via his consistent and careful use of the concept of confirm-structuration, Haugaard revises Giddens’ famous account considerably indeed I am inclined to call it an overhaul rather than a revision of structuration theory.

Rainer Forst:

I have four points to make: the first about the conceptual framework of the treatise, the second about the logic of the distinction of the four dimensions, the third about the ‘nature’ of power as analysed by Mark, and finally one about the normative chapter he ends the book with.
