How can you define the notion of places and forms of power?
"Places" could be important buildings or institutions that represent a certain form of power, for example Buckingham Palace – a symbol of the British monarchy, the White House – a symbol of the American presidency. A place can also be a country or a state - for example the USA is a state which is powerful enough to influence events throughout the world (superpower) and China is a major economic power in today’s world.
"Power" is the ability to control others, events, or resources; the ability to make things happen despite obstacles, resistance, or opposition. This of course leads to conflict between those who have power and those who don’t.
