20 Top Winning (And Losing) Strategies Of History's Greatest Political Leaders.
From the outspoken political adviser and 'New York Times' bestselling author: a fascinating survey of history's most memorable coups - and failures.
'Power Plays' marks the return of one of the America's frankest and most incisive political observers, with a fresh and fascinating survey of the most dramatic political moves ever made - from the wildly effective to the disastrous.
Dick Morris reaches into history to identify five different types of power play: Stand on Principle; Triangulate; Divide and Conquer; Reform Your Party; Use a New Technology; and focuses on politicians whose careers have skyrocketed after implementing them successfully . . . or foundered in the wake of misjudgement.
The politicians Morris examines range from historical to contemporary, from American to international; among them are George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan, Tony Blair, Junichiro Koizumi, Francois Mitterand, Richard Nixon, Lyndon Johnson, John F. Kennedy, Harry S. Truman, Charles de Gaulle, Winston Churchill and Abraham Lincoln.
