Abstract

The issue of power is prevalent in society today. Focusing on analyzing power issues in an intercultural marriage, Raven’s (2008) bases of power are applied in this research to investigate the matter. The issue is analyzed in a memoir by Susan Blumberg-Kason entitled Good Chinese Wife (2014). This research aims to identify which types of the bases of power proposed by Raven (2008) used by the character to exercise his power over others and how it is exercised. The exercise of power is analyzed by focusing on conflicts that arise between the characters, particularly between the husband and the wife. The only visible types of power in the memoir are expert power, referent power, and coercive power. In addition, the conflict that is caused by superiority becomes the main conflict in their marriage life since it occurs in every three types of power. The results of the study show that power can be manifested through love. The husband can exercise his power over his wife because he takes advantage of her love for the husband’s culture, which in this case is Chinese culture. Keywords: culture, intercultural marriage, memoir, power, superiority.
