Lucian Pye is Ford Professor of Political Science, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the author of Mao Tse-Tung: The Man in the Leader.
Pye's thesis is that as social psychology cannot be properly understood unless it is embodied in a context of individual psychology, so the phenomenon of power cannot be understood without reference to the cultural context within which it exists. Pye contends that those political scientists who study the nature of power have erred in treating it as a universal concept...Central to Pye's thesis is his contrasting of the Western concept of individual autonomy with the Eastern concept of dependency on an idealized, benevolent, authoritarian leadership. Closely reasoned and brilliantly argued, this is a superb contribution to the international political debate. Kirkus Reviews An extremely lucid, informative, and valuable work that meets a long-standing need for a readable and comprehensive view of the methods and cultural foundations of exercising power and authority in Asia. Choice This a rich and stimulating analysis which will be the subject of much scholarly debate. Foreign Affairs
