Abstract:

In a twenty-first century which celebrates freedom and equality while also
beginning to question the lax attitudes and methods which have triumphed since
the late Sixties, reflecting on the concept of authority is as necessary as
ever. What role does, and should, authority play in political, social, and
academic organization? Should one plead for stricter or more flexible
authority? Where does the frontier between authority and authoritarianism lie?
In examining these, and other related questions, this volume, postulating the
interconnectedness between authority and discourse, also discusses the
rhetorical strategies whereby authority is constructed, manifested, and
resisted.

Pertaining to subjects as various as politics, culture, literature, history,
and pedagogy, the twenty chapters which constitute this book offer an
interdisciplinary, yet thematically coherent, coverage of the question under
discussion, and encompass a wide historical and spatial scope, which ranges
from the Islamic Middle Ages to twenty-first century America, passing through
nineteenth- and twentieth-century Europe, India, and North Africa on the way.
