Was uns Shakespeare über Trump, Putin und Co. verrät Wie kann es sein, dass eine große Nation in die Hände eines Tyrannen fällt? Warum akzeptieren die Menschen die Lügen eines Mannes, der ihrem Land so offensichtlich schadet? Und gibt es eine Chance, den Tyrannen zu stoppen, ehe es zu spät ist? In seinen Dramen - von "Richard III." bis "Julius Cäsar" - hat sich William Shakespeare immer wieder mit diesen Fragen beschäftigt und vom Aufstieg der Tyrannen, von ihrer Herrschaft und ihrem Niedergang erzählt. Stephen Greenblatt, einer der renommiertesten Shakespeare-Experten unserer Zeit, zeigt uns, wie präzise und anschaulich der Dichter aus Stratford das Wesen der Tyrannei eingefangen hat – und wie erschreckend aktuell uns dies heute erscheint.

The underlying ideals and values of British and American people are compared and the book goes on to analyse the constitution before considering the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government in detail.

Political parties, the media and elections, pressure groups and voting are all extensively covered, with some concluding thoughts on the current condition of democracy in Britain and the US.

Die politische und persönliche Autobiographie des europäischen Spitzenpolitikers Tony Blair fuhr 1997 den größten Wahlsieg der Labour Party in der britischen Geschichte ein und beendete damit eine 18-jährige Regierungszeit der Konservativen. Als Premierminister stand er bald im Ruf eines dynamischen Staatenlenkers, der mit seinem New Labour den Stillstand und Reformstau der Nach-Thatcher-Ära wirkungsvoll beendete. In seinen Memoiren gibt Tony Blair jetzt unverstellt Einblick in sein privates und politisches Leben und Wirken, wobei neben all den Erfolgen auch die Kontroversen und Enttäuschungen (Stichwort: Irak) nicht ausgeblendet werden. Ein Buch, das die Komplexitäten unserer globalisierten Welt und die Herausforderungen an Führungskräfte über das Politische hinaus konkret erfahrbar werden lässt und zudem Orientierung für die Zukunft bietet. Enthält Hintergrundinformationen aus erster Hand über die internationale Politik der letzten anderthalb Jahrzehnte.

The Political Marketing Revolution

Transforming the Government of the UK

This book shows how British politics is being transformed from a leadership-run system to one dictated by public needs and demands. No longer confined to party politics, organizations including the monarchy, the BBC, universities, local councils, charities and the Scottish Parliament are adopting the tools of market intelligence to understand their market needs and demands.The political marketing revolution raises many questions, such as whether the student or patient really does know best and can decide his own education and health care. The book calls for a debate about the movement of the British political system towards a market-orientation and a re-negotiation of the relationship between leaders and the market. While recognizing the need for political leaders to listen, this debate places some responsibilities on the political consumer, looking to create a new relationship that might work more effectively for both sides.
