Deborah Parker (Professor of Italian, University of Virginia) and Mark Parker (Professor of English, James Madison University) are the authors of Sucking Up: A Brief Consideration of Sycophancy. The book examines sycophancy from several perspectives — from the earliest types in classical literature and history, through the models developed by modern sociology, but most of all through the lens of literature.
