About this book

Challenging the standard views that individual leaders either have all the power or little room to move in the making of foreign policy, this book demonstrates various ways that leaders succeed by manipulating elements of their domestic and international environments.

Reviews

"Andrea K. Grove has produced an innovative framework for helping us understand the vital role of leadership in foreign policy. Her focus on leadership strategies deftly combines creative IR theorizing with solid comparative case studies, resulting in a persuasive, genuinely cross-national work of foreign policy scholarship. The book's accessible style and clearly articulated theoretical argument will be welcomed by student and scholar alike. Political Leadership in Foreign Policy is a refreshing and engaging contribution to the field."

-Brian Ripley, Department of Political Science, Mercyhurst College

"In an interdependent world in which political leaders often find themselves at the mercy of events beyond their control, Grove identifies four recurring strategies by which successful leaders generate support for their policy ideas. Using cases involving Pakistan, South Africa, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Zimbabwe, her innovative study is a 'must read' for those in leadership positions as well as by the academics who study them. Political Leadership in Foreign Policy is a significant addition to the field of leadership studies, as it offers strategic guidance for all organizational leaders."

-Ralph G. Carter, Professor and Chair, Department of Political Science, Texas Christian University

"Grove successfully chooses a set of very significant actors in wide-ranging recent and current world events - this book will satisfy students' interests in post-Cold War leaders. Each chapter skillfully analyzes how leaders interpret and manipulate both domestic and international constraints, leading off with the question, 'How did they interpret and meet the obstacles confronting them?' The case chapters answer these questions in a very well-presented, easy-to-read common framework with an attention to research strategies and a grounding in cutting-edge scholarship."

-Juliet Kaarbo, Associate Professor, Department of Political Science, University of Kansas
