About this item

Bahlieda, a retired elementary school principal from Canada, examines the role of patriarchy in shaping education and leadership. He argues that people in Western society live in a “democratic gulag” consisting of a “prison” of ideas, values, and beliefs constructed within the tradition of patriarchy about religion, leadership, education, politics, and capitalism, that is no longer questioned and has become part of human consciousness. He uses critical theory to analyze the influence of patriarchy on the modern world, discussing its history and meaning and effects on gender and violence; the new patriarchy in the postmodern world, in terms of gender socialization, sport, and the media; and the role of leaders; and patriarchy and leadership in education.
