Description

This program explores the anthropological concepts of political organisation and social control as practiced cross-culturally. It opens with a discussion of the concepts of political organisation, in terms of power, authority, functions, and its four main forms: bands, tribes, chiefdoms, and states, then explores the various methods of maintaining social order across cultures. Methods of dispute resolution are described. China's control over citizen use of the internet is used as an example of the interrelationships between social control, ideology, legitimacy, and the potential for the use of force by ruling powers.
