"In short, this is a valuable book. The editors are to be congratulated, both for their own efforts and for assembling a strong cast of contributors. Let us hope that the volume stimulates further work on the impact of personality on policy."

FC Journal - Diplomacy and Statecraft - reveiwed by P.M.H.Bell University of Liverpool

"The editors have conceived an enterprising and worthwhile project, and carried it through to a successful conclusion, in thee shape of a new and forceful contribution to a long-running debate."

"This is an excellent collection of essays which, as Roy Jenkins points out in his preface, "rarely fail to provide both little-known information and beams of illumination"." - Michael Dockrill, Contemporary Security Policy
