Product Description


'Ludger Helms expands our knowledge of presidents and prime ministers by this systematic comparison of two different types of parliamentary leaders, the British prime minister and the German chancellor, and the American president. The comparison is thoroughly grounded in political science concepts and literature in two continents, and in research on the ground.' - Richard Rose, University of Strathclyde, UK

'The study of the executive and of leadership within it remains curiously understudied. Ludger Helms has provided an empirically rich and theoretically informed book which will greatly help all students of comparative government.' - Gillian Peele, University of Oxford, UK
