Every time we interact with another person, whether we realise it or not, we must deal with issues of power that take place within a shared hierarchy. Because there are those who misuse their rank, we can find ourselves in disputes that ruin individuals, families, workplaces, and communities. In "Battles between Somebodies and Nobodies", Dr. Julie Ann Wambach offers insights about kinds of hierarchies, how we create Somebodies and Nobodies, and the nature of those rank abusers who produce havoc in our lives. She maintains that battles lead to more battles, wherein everyone loses. With information and planning, readers can resolve conflicts in more creative fashions.This self help book describes how abuse of rank strikes in many parts of our life. While the book includes some theory, it is basically a how-to for anyone who wants out of the rank abuse cycle. The serious topic of rank abuse is presented in a friendly conversational style punctuated with 35 whimsical drawings. With the help of a 'Rank Conflict Inventory,' numerous real life examples, step-by-step strategies, chapter exercises, and 20 rankist types, "Battles" is for a diverse audience.
