基本説明

The central argument is that only through the use of concepts and perspectives more commonly associated with the American presidency is it possible to illuminate the strengths and weaknesses of British presidency.

Full Description


Makes a compelling argument about the increrased importance of political leaders and the changing style of leadership in Britain and the US. Introduces new concepts and backs them up with a convincing argument about the existence of a British 'presidency'. Completely up-to-date - the first convincing analysis of Tony Blair's leadership style. Locates the emergence of the New Labour project and its defining ideal of strong leadership within the context of Margaret Thatcher's conviction politics and the dysfunctional premiership of John Major. Concludes that Blair's rise to power and his dominating presence in government represents a decisive precedent and the standard against which his competitors and successors will be judge. -- .
