What makes a successful political leader? How much influence can an individual really have? Why are so few top political leaders women? David Bell roots this collection in the classic works of Machiavelli and Weber, before turning to the work of the American political scientists who were the first to study leadership in a systematic way in the 1960s, and coming right up-to-date with the work of Skowronek and others. Theories of leadership Machiavelli and political leadership Weber's view of political leadership Leadership character Ethics of leadership The entourage - the leader's team Political artifice in leadership The leadership effect.
