Summary This paper examines Markus' (1983) paper, using literature from the sociological and philosophical disciplines to provide an updated view of power and its influence on politics and Information Systems (IS). Using these different literature sources, which are becoming more accepted in the IS discipline, provides a richer understanding of power and politics in Information Systems. An alternative research methodology, critical ethnography, has also been described in the context of Markus' study and a case study has been provided which adopts this alternate approach.
