Rodney Barker discusses the origins, character and life of political and religious witch hunts, as well as the relation between what people say, what they believe and what they do. Professor Rodney Barkers' research interests lie in the areas of political thinking in modern Britain and the legitimation of governments, subjects and rebels. He also looks at the creation and cultivation of political identity and the conceptualisation and depiction of enemies in narratives of political identity.

    Mr. Barker's views on political and religious witch hunts seem still valid even in today's era. The justice system
    in my opinion should be included right with the latter two. The power to manipulate others, along with the
    willingness and ambition to do so, is a plague of mankind.
