Introduction -- Putting leaders in context -- Democratic leadership : myths, powers, styles -- Redefining leadership -- Transformational political leadership -- Revolutions and revolutionary leadership -- Totalitarian and authoritarian leadership -- Foreign policy illusions of 'strong leaders' -- What kind of leadership is desirable?
