The Myth of the Strong Leader

Overview

If I asked you whether you wanted to live in a democracy or a totalitarian state, which would you choose? Most people would pick a democracy. However, they'd often also pick a 'strong' leader.

Part of the reason why is because of the media's influence on our perception. Political news tends to focus on leaders' superficial characteristics rather than on their abilities. This can make it seem like traits associated with the idea of power are the only thing that matters in a good leader.

However, true leaders know how to compromise and listen. In The Myth of the Strong Leader: Political Leadership in the Modern Age, Archie Brown delves into the hidden qualities of the best leaders in the world.
