OUT OF JOINT: POWER, CRISIS, AND THE RHETORIC OF TIME
by Nomi Claire Lazar
published by Yale University Press
How constructions of time shape political beliefs about what is possible—and what is inevitable
To secure power in a crisis, leaders must sell deep change as a means to future good. But how could we know the future? Nomi Claire Lazar draws on stories across a range of cultures and contexts, ancient and modern, to show how leaders use constructions of time to frame events. These frames carry an implicit promise to secure or subvert an expected future, shaping belief in what is possible—and what is inevitable.
