Leadership Selection in Six Western Democracies Book Description:

How national leaders in six Western democracies are nominated for high office, not how they are elected, is the focus of this work. The author examines the combination of methods each country utilizes to nominate their leaders. The text emphasizes that most national leaders have served a long apprenticeship in various public offices--and sometimes have made several attempts--before actually being nominated to the nation's highest public office. Increasingly, the text shows opinion polls, television, and professional campaign management are playing a greater role in the leadership selection process in all six countries.
