Chris E. Marshall, Vincent J. Webb

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Go ode’s 1972 presidential address to the American Sociological Association provided an important incentive to the research community. Goode suggested that the humanistic tradition in social science has blinded many to the role of force in modern societies; force plays an integral role in democracies, as it does in tyrannies. Goode stated: “in any civil society… everyone is subject to force. All are engaged in it daily, not alone as victims but as perpetrators as well.... We are all potentially dangerous to one another�? (p. 510).
