Présentation de l'éditeur

This enriching book explores a theoretical gap in international relations and the role of leader ambition. It presents the idea that some leaders transcend political constraints and as a result, they fundamentally reshape their domestic polity while introducing change to the international system. Drawing on the classical and modern political thinkers, Mark Menaldo studies leaders with ‘transformative ambition’. Through the force of their initiative, personalities and the practice of statesmanship, leaders with transformative ambition try to accomplish great goals for their states, despite international and domestic constraints. In support of the argument, the author examines historical case studies that include Otto Von Bismarck, Woodrow Wilson, Charles de Gaulle, and Pericles.
