Politics as leadership by Robert C Tucker( )

19 editions published between 1981 and 1995 in English and held by 2,048 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert C. Tucker begins this invaluable book with an analytical look at politics, leadership, and the effect each has on the other. Aligning himself with Plato's view of politics as leadership, Tucker argues that politics is more usefully defined from this perspective than from the more familiar stance of the exercise of power. He maintains leaders must define collective problems, prescribe actions or policies, and finally seek support for their diagnoses and policy prescriptions. Tucker contends that political science must take account not only of leadership by those in state authority, but also of sociopolitical movements for change as vehicles of attempted leadership of political communities. Dividing such movements into those for reform and those for revolution, he illustrates this distinction with examples, including Martin Luther King Jr. as a reform leader and Lenin as a revolutionary one. Finally, Tucker raises a central question of his study: how can leadership save humankind from itself in the troubled world of today? In an insightful and moving discussion of what he calls the "crisis syndrome," Tucker analyzes problems such as population growth, resource depletion, and environmental degradation with respect to leadership. He argues that the current political process has focused on the immediate present while ignoring crises with far-reaching implications that require tough solutions. In the epilogue to this revised edition, Tucker draws on his expertise as a Russian specialist, extending the book's discussion of leadership by viewing Mikhail Gorbachev as a reform leader in Soviet Russia and Boris Yeltsin as a post-Soviet Russian leader. Tucker also readdresses the "crisis syndrome" by examining leaders' responses in the 1980s and early 1990s. Tucker's incisive reasoning, original insights, and commentary on the theory and practice of politics should make this revised edition of Politics as Leadership equally valuable and fascinating for experts in the field of political science and for concerned citizens."--Publishers website

"Leadership, a mainstay of Soviet political studies, has been a much-neglected subject since the collapse of the Soviet regime. However, developments in post-Soviet affairs show that leadership still matters greatly, even as democratization in many states has opened up the political process to wider circles of the population."--BOOK JACKET. "This volume explores new developments and old continuities in elite politics in the Russian Federation and other post-Soviet states during the period of transition and consolidation. The contributing authors analyze the significance of personal character and values, of changing leadership roles and institutions, and of cultural and historical traditions for the functioning and effectiveness of the new governments and their top leaders."--BOOK JACKET
