Abstract : The topic of leadership has long been at the center of studies of politics. Classical political theorists were deeply concerned by questions both of who should govern, and of who in fact did rule. Recent scholarship on political elites has also focused on both of these questions, with normative theorists often asking how representative political leaders are of their societies, while their empiricist counterparts have tried to discern those characteristics of politicians that would suggest explanations and predictions of attitudes and behavior.
