Prospect Book Club – David Runciman
As Britain goes to the polls the question is on all our minds: What makes a successful prime minister or president?
In these pen portraits of leaders ranging from Margaret Thatcher and Gordon Brown to Barack Obama and Donald Trump, David Runciman tracks how their ambitions for ultimate power were thwarted by bureaucratic institutions and the flaws in their own character. Runciman, the host of the hugely successful Talking Politics podcast, asks whether there is a blueprint leaders can follow to get what they want. Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn should be taking notes.
