What's So Great About Strong Leaders?
Speaker(s): Professor Archie Brown
Recorded on 28 April 2014 in Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building.
The conventional wisdom, shared by many politicians and political commentators, is that strong leaders who dominate their colleagues and the policy-making process are the most successful and admirable. Brown argues this is a dangerous illusion.
