About this book

Olof Palme (Sweden), Olusegun Obasanjo (Nigeria), and Indira Gandhi (India) achieved the pinnacle of political power, fell from or relinquished power, and then, after a period in the political wilderness, regained it. By placing greater emphasis than that customarily accorded by biographers on the "interment" that followed their "fall" and preceded their "resurrection," the book describes how what they did, the lessons they learned, and the mistakes made by their successors facilitated their reentry.

Reviews

"This is an intriguing and ambitious project. A comparison of eight political careers that share a common pattern of attaining power and then returning after a time out of power in which the actors gain perspective on their exercise of power and the problems they confronted in implementing policy, offers an opportunity to make comparisons across divides of nation-state and diverse political cultures." - John (Kim) Munholland, University of Minnesota
