Editorial Reviews

Review

"'This book is the most up-to-date available investigation of the understanding of tyranny and terror that psychologists, psychoanalysts and experts on group and institutional behaviour can provide. Manfred Kets de Vries has produced a masterpiece. He draws on a wealth of published research in the field and relates it in an academically excellent, yet eminently readable, way to the premier problem of the beginning of the 21st century. I strongly recommend it.' - Anton Obholzer, formerly Tavistock Centre London, Psychoanalyst and Organizational Consultant; 'From constructive narcissism to reactive narcissism, we are but one step away from megalomania and terror. Professor Kets de Vries traces the origin of leadership by terror to early childhood in this case study of Shaka Zulu. A gruesome story warns us that terror may be inherent in the human condition.' - Abraham Zaleznik, Harvard Business School, US; 'Kets de Vries has written another terrific book on leadership. However, this work will prove both timely and insightful to students of leadership and political psychology. Through the tale of Shaka Zulu, Kets de Vries introduces us to our very own despotic tendencies and thus familiarizes the reader with the human side, however horribly oppressive and destructive, of leadership by terror. Here is a genuine contribution to the field of leadership studies.' - Michael A. Diamond, University of Missouri-Columbia, US"

Leadership has nothing to do with morality. Some of the greatest leaders in history were ruthless and despots, but the concept of leadership transcends. I highly suggest you read this book if you are a student of leadership.
