520    Tony Blair and John Howard appear to be incongruous 
       choices for comparative analysis. Howard was from the 
       ideological right of Australian politics, with a 
       leadership style based on experience and an uncharismatic,
       cautious, bureaucratic persona. Blair was the charismatic,
       new progressive centre-left leader with an emotional, 
       thespian style, stressing vision and moral imperatives. 
       Yet, it is possible to identify both personal and 
       institutional similarities. This book argues that both 
       leaders stretched the institutional resources available to
       them and enhanced their own personal capital. Over time, 
       the political capital generated by each inevitably fell 
       away to the extent that they both (although for 
       contrasting reasons) left office in 2007. Prime Ministers 
       in Powerinvestigates prime ministerial predominance in 
       Britain and Australia. It is a timely addition to the 
       scholarly material on political leadership, adding a 
       comparative dimension by using case study analysis of two 
       prime ministers in similar political systems. How did 
       these two prime ministers establish such predominant 
       positions? How far can prime ministers stretch the 
       institutions within which they work and how much of an 
       impact does the office-holder have on the office? What 
       conclusions can be drawn from the comparison of the two 
       prime ministers? What are the consequences and costs of 
       such predominance? This book addresses these questions, 
       offering a comparative perspective on the nature of prime 
       ministerial leadership
