In 1959, French & Raven, writing on The Bases of Social Power, began by stating: “The processes of power are pervasive, complex, and often disguised in our society.” In 2016, just shy of six decades later, Crossman, Hardesty, & Raffaelli published an article titled: “‘He Could Scare Me Without Laying a Hand On Me’: Mothers’ Experiences of Nonviolent Coercive Control During Marriage and After Separation.” Both French & Raven, in alluding to processes of power that are disguised, and Crossman, et al., in addressing nonviolent coercive control, have emphasized a form of interpersonal abuse that has received inadequate attention.
