Leadership: By What Authority?

  • Clarence Walton
Part of the Issues in Business Ethics book series (IBET, volume 11)

Abstract

In the waning days of medieval history, Englishmen gave great attention to the precise ordering of relationships between crown and community because of fears that overbearing monarchs were threatening their rights as free people. So it was that barons maneuvered to wrest pledges from the king not to tax without parliamentary approval or to interfere with their personal freedoms. Brooking no interference in their private lives, they sought to erect protective walls through a famous writ called quo warranto, which required officials to show by what authority they held a public office or performed a duty.
