"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.

Although the extraordinary leadership that stimulated European recovery efforts in the late 1940s and early 1950s is now widely celebrated as a model for international development assistance, the role of leadership in development is too often taken for granted. Rondinelli and Heffron argue persuasively that leadership is the hallmark of almost every successful effort at international development since the late 1940s, and that its absence is the underlying cause of most development failures. Leadership for Development examines fundamental issues: the tools leaders use to achieve development goals; how culture and interdependence among governments and organizations affects leadership styles; where leaders get their advice from – experts, non-experts, academic or non-academic elites – and if it matters; whether transformational or transactional leadership styles are more effective; and the lessons that can be drawn from examining the traits of successful leaders. Focusing largely on the Pacific Basin region and Latin America, the book offers valuable case studies for development practitioners looking to increase their effectiveness in a highly interdependent global society.
