"If a person doesn't have the capacity that we all want that person to have, I suspect hope is in the far distant future, if at all." --President George W. Bush No matter how powerful, no matter how rich, leaders from all walks of life make public faux pas from time to time (and some blunder more often than that). That's bad for them, but entertaining for us. From Richard Nixon's "I am not a crook" to Dan Quayle's world-famous "potato" fiasco, here are hundreds of laugh-out-loud gaffes, all categorized for easy reference. The topics include Ability, Authority, Character, Crime, Fidelity, Freedom, Political Correctness, Responsibility, and War. Some of the quotes are laugh-out-loud funny, others just reveal jaw-dropping stupidity.

Political leadership has made a comeback. It was studied intensively not only by political scientists but also by political sociologists and psychologists, Sovietologists, political anthropologists, and by scholars in comparative and development studies from the 1940s to the 1970s. Thereafter, the field lost its way with the rise of structuralism, neo-institutionalism, and rational choice approaches to the study of politics, government, and governance. Recently, however, students of politics have returned to studying the role of individual leaders and the exercise of leadership to explain political outcomes. The list of topics is nigh endless: elections, conflict management, public policy, government popularity, development, governance networks, and regional integration. In the media age, leaders are presented and stage-managed—spun—as the solution to almost every social problem. Through the mass media and the Internet, citizens and professional observers follow the rise, impact, and fall of senior political officeholders at closer quarters than ever before. This Handbook encapsulates the resurgence by asking, where are we today? It orders the multidisciplinary field by identifying the distinct and distinctive contributions of the disciplines. It meets the urgent need to take stock. It brings together scholars from around the world, encouraging a comparative perspective, to provide a comprehensive coverage of all the major disciplines, methods, and regions. It showcases both the normative and empirical traditions in political leadership studies, and juxtaposes behavioural, institutional, and interpretive approaches. It covers formal, office-based as well as informal, emergent political leadership, and in both democratic and undemocratic polities.
