Authority is one of the key issues in political studies, for the question of by what right one person or several persons govern others is at the very root of political activity. In selecting key readings for this volume Joseph Raz concerns himself primarily with the moral aspect of political authority, choosing pieces that examine its justification, determine who is subject to it and who is entitled to hold it, and whether there are any general moral limits to it.

The readings—by such modern political thinkeres as Robert Paul Wolff, H. L. A. Hart, G. E. M. Anscombe, and Ronald Dworkin—examine the basic moral issues and provide an essential introduction to the debate about the nature of authority for all students of political theory.

About the Author:

Joseph Raz is Professor of Philosophy of Law at the University of Oxford and Fellow of Balliol Colelge, Oxford.

Review:

"Not only has [Schneller] given us his remarkable insight into one man's story of courage, perseverance and determination, but he has framed that dramatic experience within the larger narration of American race relations in the twentieth century . Anyone desiring a more complete understanding of African Americans' struggle to desegregate the armed forces will find this book indispensable."
-"Journal of American History",

"A marvelous book. Schneller takes what might first appear to be a fairly narrow topic and offers a sweeping, well-researched account which places the question of race at the Naval Academy in the context of the Navy and the nation."
-"International Journal of Maritime History",

"Describes for the first time the difficulties Wesley Brown endured and the concerted effort by a 'tight knot' of Southern upperclassmen to oust him using racial epithets, ostracism, and demerits."
-"Washington Post",

"This richly researched and judiciously written study facilitates deeper comprehension of how institutional racism preserved white hegemony in the U.S. Navy until Midshipman Wesley Brown detonated its color barrier."
-Darlene Clark Hine, author of "A Shining Thread of Hope: The History of Black Women in America"

"This detailed story is one that has been long overdue in being told. Dr. Schneller has told it exceedingly well."
-"Proceedings/U.S. Naval Institute ",
