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.
Associate Professor Nomi Claire Lazar is a political theorist and the author of a variety of books and articles in the areas of political thought, legal theory and public policy. Raised in a politically engaged family in Canada’s capital city, Ottawa, Assoc Prof Lazar has strong interests in rhetoric, strategy and political ethics, and with the ways in which institutions and rules interact with individual choices.
