green quote
Fantastic use of a case study to work through the third dimension of power.
green quote
Gaventa hopes his study of a single area over time will allow better understanding of the politics of inequality, particularly the “quiescence phenomenon,” in industrial society.
green quote
He is, for instance, too anxious for rebellion; he sees it as the only logical choice for the miner-mountaineers.
green quote
He so desperately tries to avoid the perception that the miners are in any way to blame for their situation that he sidelines them almost completely as victims of external (and later internal) oppression.It has to be noticed, though, that Gaventa responds to the approach taken by social scientists in his time, who focused almost exclusively on culture, making the dominated force "B" practically solely responsible for the existing inequalities.Nevertheless it is a good book on the nature of power.

Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

Yes! I highly recommend this general elections/political process book based on manufacturer ratings and comparison with its similar products. Let's go over the reasons why buying this general elections/political process book now is a good idea, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. Manufacturer has very positive reviews on all their products!

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing or there is some defect in the product? With anything you buy online, there is a small chance of this happening. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). Still, you want to make sure that the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. As you see in my manufacturer report below, University of Illinois Press has very positive reviews for their products. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, this is likely a safe bet.

2. Sadly, this is your only option

3. This general elections/political process book has positive reviews on the internet

Some people have a great experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item and have to go through the whole process of returning them. Since people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, don't read too much into one good or bad review. Reading multiple reviews with different ratings can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This general elections/political process book has positivereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this general elections/political process book more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product above in the good/ok/bad table, so don't forget to read those since they paint the whole picture! And of course, if you want to read more detailed reviews, many of them are on Amazon!See More Reviews on AmazonSee More Reviews on Amazon

4. Take a look at its price history

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in four parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and a price prediction I made, just in case you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. The price of this product has not changed from June 2, 2020 to June 17, 2020, which means that it has steady and healthy supply!

Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this general elections/political process book was $28.00, and the lowest price point was $9.00. The current price is greater than it has ever been. If the best price is what you're looking for, this could be potentially be a bad time to purchase.

What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. I haven't seen this product being unavailable since I started reviewing this product. So as far as the availability goes, this product is solid. If you plan to make a repeat purchase of this kind of item, this is your product! In addition, I've seen a small amount of price movement with this product. From what I've seen, the price is likely to move up or down by an average of 2.24% at a time.

Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? Based on past price points, I expect the price to be $27.76 a week from now. It might be best to wait for a future price drop, but if this product checks all the boxes for you, don't wait to optimize for small gain.

5. Make sure University of Illinois Press is a brand you can trust

University of Illinois Press doesn't attract too many people on Amazon among other general elections/political process book brands. I couldn't find any YouTube videos, Reddit posts, or news articles that directly mention this product, but this can be just me not looking hard enough. Will update this when I have more info!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

That's it! I hope you learned enough about this product to make a purchase decision now. You can always ask me about anything via the bird button on the bottom right corner. Thanks for reading — I'm going to add more analyses on this review, so stay tuned!
