Free Expression, Globalism and the New Strategic Communication In his new book, Free Expression, Globalism and the New Strategic Communications, Professor Price introduces the concept of "narratives of legitimacy," their production, their functions, efforts to regulate them and their relation to current issues of media and national identity. What are these "higher rank narratives," including succession by divine right, democratic election processes, the introduction of the caliphate, and the mysteries of Sykes-Picot (this being its 100th anniversary) and how are they faring?
