An edited collection of the ARN's work, Authority, Experience and the Life of Power, has just been published by Routledge.
"To understand power you must also grasp the problematic and productive dimensions of authority ... the authors in this volume call on us to work upon those aspects that have been most ignored in the literature and politics of authority. A rich and provocative set of essays"
William E. Connolly, Johns Hopkins University
"An original and inspiring set of reflections that raises important questions and opens up debates on 'positive power', authority, and community"
Kate Nash, Goldsmiths, University of London
"In the literature on power there has been a tendency to interpret power as domination, thus the opposite of authority. In this important collection of articles the authors challenge this viewpoint, arguing that power and authority structure everyday life in a mutually constitutive manner ... this collection makes a significant contribution to contemporary debates in social theory" Mark Haugaard, National University of Ireland.
