All too frequently, leadership is reduced to a dichotomy: the strong versus the weak. Yet, there are myriad ways to exercise effective political leadership?as well as different ways of failing. The myth of the strong leader leads us to believe that strength is to be admired, weakness to be deplored or pitied. This perpetuates a precarious illusion?and the danger only escalates in dictatorships where power is more concentrated in one individual.

In The Myth of the Strong Leader, legendary Oxford politics professor Archie Brown challenges the widespread belief that strong leaders?those who dominate their colleagues and the policy-making process?are the most successful. Brown contends it is high time to abandon this notion, for wise leadership comes in many forms?and in many circumstances a more collegial ruling is much more effective. From Charles De Gaulle to Margaret Thatcher to, from Deng Xiaoping to Barack Obama, The Myth of the Strong Leader offers a valuable reassessment of the leaders who shape our world.
