The Frailty of Authority explores the social, economic, cultural, and historical forces that shape and constrain the common worldviews that give ideological legitimacy to collectivities ranging from dynastic American families to Communist party cadres in China. The Frailty of Authority is the fifth consecutive volume in the series, Political Anthropology. It offers original analyses in a pioneering, multidisciplinary field concerned with understanding political man. Articles cover a wide range of theoretical, conceptual, and methodological approaches in exploring the complex inter-relationships among socioeconomic, cultural, and political phenomena.
