Notă biografică

Archie Brown is Emeritus Professor of Politics at Oxford University. For almost five decades he has written on Soviet and Communist politics, the Cold War, and political leadership. His previous books include The Gorbachev Factor (1996), Seven Years that Changed the World: Perestroika in Perspective (2007) and The Rise and Fall of Communism (Bodley Head, 2009).


" important and unusual read ... Brown does a wonderful job of showing how the same qualities that can seem so appealing in strong leaders can lead, in the mildest cases, to bad decision-- and, in the most extreme cases, to death and suffering on a massive scale ... Though The Myth of the Strong Leader is about political leadership, you come away from Brown's book with a deeper understanding of leadership in general."—Bill Gates' Favorite Books of 2016
"Counter-intuitive but splendidly argued ... This is an ambitious work made more compelling by its breadth."—Washington Post
"Rich and multidimensional."—Foreign Affairs
"It is a pleasure to find a book on political leadership that imposes no theories or models but studies actual political leaders, dozens of them from many countries, in a historical survey from the beginning of the 20th century."—Wall Street Journal
"A rich description of different varieties of political leadership in diverse cultures. It is hard to imagine a better guide than Brown, who has lived and worked in the UK, US and Russia, and is both an outstanding political scholar and an elegant, witty writer."—Guardian (UK)
"Persuasive analysis of politically leadership."—Independent (UK)
"Impressive in scope and sophistication, Brown offers a model of leadership that is both strong and purpose driven."

"A sure-handed historical review with an engaging viewpoint."—Kirkus
"Rich in historical detail and insight."—
Publishers Weekly

"Brown raises important questions about the nature of leadership and the expectations we have for our leaders."—Booklist
