After thirty years, the only human engagement with Area X—a seemingly malevolent landscape surrounded by an invisible border and mysteriously wiped clean of all signs of civilization—has been a series of expeditions overseen by a government agency so secret it has almost been forgotten: the Southern Reach. Following the tumultuous twelfth expedition chronicled in Annihilation, the agency is in complete disarray. John Rodrigues (aka "Control") is the Southern Reach's newly appointed head. Working with a distrustful but desperate team, a series of frustrating interrogations, a cache of hidden notes, and hours of profoundly troubling video footage, Control begins to penetrate the secrets of Area X. But with each discovery he must confront disturbing truths about himself and the agency he's pledged to serve. In Authority, the second volume of Jeff VanderMeer's Southern Reach trilogy, Area X's most disturbing questions are answered . . . but the answers are far from reassuring.

Letting Go? investigates path-breaking public history practices at a time when the traditional expertise of museums seems challenged at every turn—by the Web and digital media, by community-based programming, by new trends in oral history and by contemporary art. In this anthology of 19 thought pieces, case studies, conversations and commissioned art, almost 30 leading practitioners such as Michael Frisch, Jack Tchen, Liz Ševcenko, Kathleen McLean, Nina Simon, Otabenga Jones and Associates, and Fred Wilson explore the implications of letting audiences create, not just receive, historical content. Drawing on examples from history, art, and science museums, Letting Go? offers concrete examples and models that will spark innovative work at institutions of all sizes and budgets. This engaging new collection will serve as an introductory text for those newly grappling with a changing field and, for those already pursuing the goal of “letting go,” a tool for taking stock and pushing ahead.

Authority is exercised in many ways and forms in the Catholic Church today. By What Authority? offers a helpful introduction to the forms of Church authority that are concerned with authentic Christian belief. Gaillardetz explains what it means to say that the Bible is inspired, how Scripture and tradition are related to one another, the role of the Pope and bishops in preserving the Christian faith, the levels of Church teaching authority, how to deal with disagreements with Church teaching, the distinctive role of the theologians, and the contribution of all the baptized in the formation of Church teaching. This book introduces readers to a basic understanding of the nature and exercise of authority in the Catholic Church as understood within the vision of the Church offered by the Second Vatican Council. The chapters conclude by outlining disputed issues regarding the topic of that chapter and a select list of opportunities for further reading. Chapters in Part One: The Authority of Scripture and Tradition are ?What Does It Mean to Say the Bible is Inspired?? ?What Is the Canon of the Bible?? and ?What Is the Relationship Between Scripture and Tradition?? Chapters in Part Two: The Authority of Church Teaching and the Church?s Teaching Office are ?How Do We Understand the Magisterium Today?? ?How Do the Pope and Bishops Exercise Their Teaching Authority?? and ?What Is Dogma and Doctrine?? Chapters in Part Three: The Authority of the Believer and the Believing Community are ?What Is the Sense of the Faithful?? ?Is There a Place for Disagreement in the Catholic Church?? and ?What Is the Proper Relationship Between the Magisterium and Theologians???In straightforward and generally non-technical language, it treats various aspects of authority that pertain to the teachings of the Catholic Church in a clear and helpful way for anyone who desires a deeper understanding of what authoritative teaching entails.? New Theology Review?Will Rogers said, ?We?re all educated, only its about different things.? This sage observation came to mind as I read By What Authority? Many well educated, even professional, Catholics retain a somewhat elementary knowledge of Catholic belief and teaching. This book is a lucid, balanced guide for the interested inquirer on such complex questions as the sense of the faithful, the role of theologians and church authority, and the various levels of church teaching. A great contribution, this book should be widely read.? Most Rev. John R. Quinn Archbishop Emeritus of San Francisco?Gaillardetz has emerged as one of the few true authorities on the authority of the Catholic Church. By some miracle he has managed to balance not only tradition and development, but also first-rate theology with wide accessibility. I will use this as a text in my course on the Church.? Dennis M. Doyle Religious Studies University of Dayton?Richard Gaillardetz has earned a reputation as a leading authority on the theology of the magisterium. Taking his point of departure from Vatican II?s teaching on divine revelation, he shows how revelation is mediated symbolically through the stories and traditions of God?s people. His book guides the reader skillfully through difficult questions such as the nature of biblical inspiration, the gradual emergence of the canon, the relation between Scripture and tradition, the authority of the Church?s teaching office as well as that of the believing community. A chapter asking if there is a place for ?disagreement? in the Catholic Church is particularly wise. Written with an admirable clarity and simplicity, his book is honest, timely, and deeply Catholic.? Thomas P. Rausch, S.J. T. Marie Chilton Professor of Catholic Theology Loyola Marymount University?Gaillardetz sets himself the task of synthesizing and presenting in an accessible manner the theological work on revelation and church teaching authority appearing since Vatican II. He succeeds in a remarkably clear and engaging way.? Pastoral Music?This work is a great resource for those interested in understanding the several sources and practical uses of authority within contemporary Catholicism.? Catholic Books Review?Gaillardetz?s book is written as an honest and charitable presentation of the current teaching of the hierarchical magisterium, with a respectful treatment of the authority of sovereign conscience for each and all believers. . . . This book will whet your appetite to re-read these sacred texts with renewed interest.? America?Writing in the spirit of the Second Vatican Council, Gaillardetz focuses on the exercise of authority as it is oriented toward Christian belief; that is, the authoritative relationships concerned with the Bible, tradition, popes and bishops, creeds and doctrine, theologians, and all the faithful.? New Testament Abstracts?Anyone who wants a teachable, balanced, lucid, yet comprehensive text on authority in the church need look no further.? Church?Respected Catholic theologian Richard Gaillardetz takes up important topics that are too often neglected in modern biblical studies and theology. Drawing on the teachings of the Second Vatican Council and the full spectrum of Catholic tradition, he provides the lay reader with clear explanations of such issues as revelation, biblical inspiration and inerrancy, the authority of the biblical canon, the relationship of Scripture and tradition, the authority of the magsterium and other levels of Church teaching, the role of dissent, and the sensum fidelium. Just to name this list of contents is to signal the importance of a solid and reliable exposition such as this.? The Bible Today?. . .it treats various aspects of authority that pertain to the teachings of the Catholic Church in a clear and helpful way. I recommend By What Authority? for the audiences intended by the author, as well as for anyone who desires a deeper understanding of what authoritative teaching entails.? New Theology Review

Ideological warfare against authority, especially in the world of higher education, broke out in the 1960s, and continues into the 1990s. No source or symbol of authority escaped untouched-neither parents nor teachers nor the cop on the beat. While the hippies have gone underground or disappeared entirely, the assault on legitimate authority continues unabated. As familiar institutions crumble before our eyes, befuddled liberals and conservatives alike throw up their hands in despair. In Authority and Its Enemies, Thomas Molnar asserts that the Western world is reeling from an overdose of freedom without order or authority. "Prof. Molnar's densely written book demands concentration. . . . In the much needed debate over this large, complex problem of authority in family, church, school, and state Prof. Molnar makes a sobering, closely reasoned presentation of a conservative view. That is a contribution." - Edmund Fuller, The Wall Street Journal "Once more Professor Molnar displays the clear-headedness and prescience we have come to expect from him as an analyst of the cultural and political plight of the Western world today." - David Levy, The Alternative: An American Spectator "From the pen of Dr. Thomas Molnar now comes a new and important book on authority in American society. Authority is one of those fundamental realities that we all know perfectly well-until we try to define it and explain it. A brilliant and reliable philosopher, Dr. Molnar has the exceptional ability to do both." -Kenneth Baker. S. J., Homiletic and Pastoral Review

The Achaemenid Persian Empire (550-330 BCE) was a vast and complex sociopolitical structure that encompassed much of modern-day Turkey, Syria, Jordan, Israel, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, and Afghanistan, and included two dozen distinct peoples who spoke different languages, worshiped different deities, lived in different environments, and had widely differing social customs. This book offers a radical new approach to understanding the Achaemenid Persian Empire and imperialism more generally. Through a wide array of textual, visual, and archaeological material, Elspeth R. M. Dusinberre shows how the rulers of the empire constructed a system flexible enough to provide for the needs of different peoples within the confines of a single imperial authority and highlights the variability in response. This book examines the dynamic tensions between authority and autonomy across the empire, providing a valuable new way of considering imperial structure and development.

It is this process, he argues, that accounts for the fundamental patterns of Authority in Islam that ultimately shaped, in dialectical interaction with external historical factors, the course of Islamic civilization.

James VI and I pursued various highly distinctive policies. He also, to an extent exceptional among monarchs, expressed his ideas and aspirations by means of print, pen, and spoken word. The essays in this volume explore four main themes of particular concern to James: the union of England and Scotland; the government of Scotland; religious unity; and James's involvement in culture as both author and patron. They throw fresh light on the ways in which James communicated his ideas and designs to his subjects, and important foreign audiences, raising important questions about his judgement and skill as a monarch.

What is authority? How is it constituted? How ought one understand the subtle (and sometimes not-so-subtle) relations between authority and coercion? Between authorized and subversive speech? In this fascinating and intricate analysis, Bruce Lincoln argues that authority is not an entity but an effect. More precisely, it is an effect that depends for its power on the combination of the right speaker, the right speech, the right staging and props, the right time and place, and an audience historically and culturally conditioned to judge what is right in all these instances and to respond with trust, respect, and even reverence. Employing a vast array of examples drawn from classical antiquity, Scandinavian law, Cold War scholarship, and American presidential politics, Lincoln offers a telling analysis of the performance of authority, and subversions of it, from ancient times to the present. Using a small set of case studies that highlight critical moments in the construction of authority, he goes on to offer a general examination of "corrosive" discourses such as gossip, rumor, and curses; the problematic situation of women, who often are barred from the authorizing sphere; the role of religion in the construction of authority; the question of whether authority in the modern and postmodern world differs from its premodern counterpart; and a critique of Hannah Arendt's claims that authority has disappeared from political life in the modern world. He does not find a diminution of authority or a fundamental change in the conditions that produce it. Rather, Lincoln finds modern authority splintered, expanded, and, in fact multiplied as the mechanisms for its construction become more complex—and more expensive.

Authority, Anxiety, and Canon elucidates a principle fundamental to Hinduism’s self-understanding—the Veda—while at the same time examining the methodological issues of the role of canon in religious tradition. Spanning the early periods of Indian religious history up to the twentieth century, the book combines theoretical sophistication and detailed scholarship to produce one of the first comprehensive works on Vedic interpretation since Louis Renou’s Le Destin Du Veda.
