George R. Terry Book Award
Power, for All: How It Really Works and Why It’s Everyone’s Business, co-authored by Julie and Tiziana Casciaro, was selected as the winner of AOM’s 2022 George R. Terry Book Award. The award is granted annually to the book judged to have made the most outstanding contribution to the global advancement of management knowledge during the last two years.
In reviewing the book, the committee noted the masterful blending of diverse literatures and research traditions to explore power in new ways.
“We are living in a time in which the negative aspects of power and the brute moves to acquire it are everywhere—from geopolitics to local school boards. Yet this also means it is a time in which understanding how this is being accomplished is essential. Then we can begin to see the possibilities of power as a means liberation and transformation. By explaining power’s inherently relational nature, the book also offers useful frameworks for practitioners, students, and researchers to study power and use it ethically.”George R. Terry Book Award Selection Committee
