What is Power? Definitions

French and Raven detail varieties of social power, but what is 'power', is it Foucault's action that requires two consenting parties - where there is the possibility of an individual decision and personal choice - or is 'power' more Weberian with clear structures and bureaucratic control, where power is exercised visibly and people are told what to do?
