Special issue on “Statesmen, Bosses, or Entrepreneurs? Problems of Political Leadership”

There is sufficient evidence from both the past and the present to claim that, in times of major upheavals, and turbulence, quite often politicians of non-standard personalities come to the fore. Manipulation and demagogy used to convince the public that only they have remedy for all problems of people’s lives are a common denominator that stood at the beginning of political careers of a wide range of populists, autocrats, and even the worst dictators. The recent years have brought a revival of these trends. Hence, an analysis of the current situation as well as of the broader historical context of these phenomena could be useful for understanding of deeper social mechanisms that push these personalities to the scene and keep them in the arena.
