    Different Types of Power Power is said to be essential in order to survive and live as individuals. I agree with this statement because of the recent texts we have read including, “Things Fall Apart” by Achebe, “Night” by Wiesel, “The Prince” by Machiavelli, and “Julius Caesar” by Shakespeare.

A consequence of this change has been a substantial increase in the number of single parent families and the attendant problems that this brings (Kilmartin, 1997).
