Absolute Power was a series of books composed by the Dark Lord of the Sith and Galactic Emperor Darth Sidious. Taken as a whole, the books comprise a political manifesto of sorts, in which the Sith Lord documented many of his own beliefs and his theories with regard to his rise to power, as well as the steps he had taken to assure his own immortality.[1]
