Hierarchy and Power in the History of Civilizations: Cultural Dimensions. Afterword.
We would like to conclude this volume with the same statement that we used to start it: The human history has evidenced various systems of hierarchy and power, various manifestations of power and hierarchy relations in different spheres of social life from politics to information networks, from culture to sexual life. We hope in this volume we have succeeded in studying the role of the cultural aspects of power-hierarchical relations and modern mass media in the public sphere. But of course there are a huge number of other cases that are no less interesting and many other important fields of research in which the problem of specificity of hierarchy and power relations is a core one. Naturally nobody can express all of them adequately. But one may try to describe at least some of them. So we would like to offer our readers two other volumes connected with the hierarchy and power's problems. These are the following volumes: Hierarchy and Power in the History of Civilizations: Ancient and Medieval Cultures (which opened Social Evolution & History Monographs series) and Hierarchy and Power in the History of Civilizations: Political Aspects of Modernity. Let us provide some more information about them.
