The Balance of Power in Society

About The Book

Frank Tannenbaum champions the need for diversity as vital to the well-being of society in the namesake essay of this book, as well as the inclusion of additional essays, such as “On Political Stability” and “The Professional Criminal.”

Including the essay published in volume 61 of the Political Science Quarterly, as well as many other essays addressing power and presence in society, Frank Tannenbaum shares his views on American lifestyle and the balance of citizens and authority within communities.

Though the vivid and sympathetic language of a true advocate of American tradition, The Balance of Power in Society and Tannenbaum’s additional essays approach the idea of revolutionized life in America, from reform to higher education to emphasizing the need for diversity in order to produce a bountiful society.
