Out of Joint

Power, Crisis, and the Rhetoric of Time

Yale University Press 2019

Today I talked to Nomi Claire Lazar about Out of Joint: Power, Crisis, and the Rhetoric of Time (Yale University Press, 2019).

Drawing on stories of leaders and thinkers across a range of cultures and political contexts, ancient and modern, Nomi Claire Lazar shows how constructions of time can help stabilize or destabilize political order and spark violent resistance or coax quiescence by shaping belief in what is possible--and what is inevitable.

Nomi Claire Lazar is Full Professor of Politics in the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Ottawa.
