Leadership is one of the principal interests of the social sciences. Drawing on psychology, sociology, anthropology and business studies as well as philosophy and history, this four-volume collection focuses on democratic leadership in the political sphere. 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.

Machiavelli and political leadership

Weber's view of political leadership

Leadership character

From the Back Cover:

Charleen Forrest's husband has left her. Gone not only from her own life, but apparently from the face of the earth. Charleen is left with his name and their marvellously uncomplicated son, Seth. She also has a fair talent for poetry and a job on the National Botanical Journal which brings her in touch with the mysterious Brother Adam... a man with a passion for silence and grass.

Charleen's piercing gift of observation is wonderfully balanced with her intermittent bouts of all-too-familiar feelings of incompetence that are as poignantly observed as her gifts for survival.
