The Myth of the Strong Leader 

The Myth of the Strong Leader epub

Book Description:

Too often, leadership is boiled down to a simple choice between the strong and the weak. Still, there are many ways to be a good leader in politics, and just as many ways to fail. We blame our leaders for bad economic times and thank them for significant social changes, but we rarely ask ourselves why some leaders do well and others don’t. In this masterful and wide-ranging look at political leadership over the past hundred years, famous Oxford politics professor Archie Brown challenges the common belief that strong leaders—those who dominate their colleagues and the policy-making process—are the most successful and admirable.

In reality, only a few political leaders will make a lasting difference. Even though we think of leaders who work well with others as weak, it’s often the leaders who work best with others who have the most impact. Brown shines a light on the successes, failures, and quirks of a wide range of politicians from the 20th century by using his years of research and political analysis and experience. When Brown talks about leaders like Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson, and Margaret Thatcher, who changed what was possible in politics during their time in power, or the even rarer transformational leaders, like Charles de Gaulle, Mikhail Gorbachev, and Nelson Mandela, who played a key role in bringing about systemic change, he challenges our common ideas about political power and strength.

Brown’s conclusions are original and enlightening because they challenge many of the things we thought we knew about the most influential people of the 20th century. The Myth of the Strong Leader makes us think again about the leaders who have shaped our world and how we should choose and judge the leaders of the future.
