    Archie Brown's highly acclaimed, wide-ranging survey of political leadership over the last 100 years explores the powers of democratic, revolutionary, authoritarian and totalitarian leaders, arguing against the 'myth' that the strongest - those who concentrate decision-making in their own hands - are the most successful and admirable. As well as discussing communist, fascist and authoritarian rulers from Lenin to Kim Il Sung, Brown focuses on the constraints on the power of leaders in democracies, discussing examples including the Thatcher and Blair governments.
