Leadership Performance and Rhetoric

Product Details

Promotional Information

"Words are actions, and leaders know it. This thought-provoking study sheds light on the rhetorical battles that have shaped Australia's recent political history - and it's a cracking good read to boot." (Dr Dennis Grube, University of Cambridge, UK) "An original diagnosis of political rhetoric, in theory and practice. The important thesis: leadership studies can renew itself by returning to its "neglected founder," the enlightenment philosopher Francis Bacon. For Bacon provides a comprehensive art of persuasion that can defend scientific and social innovation and thus "new levels of human welfare." The authors analyze accordingly six Australian instances, including a prime minister, Julia Gillard, combatting misogyny and a public intellectual, Noel Pearson, defending indigenous people. Here is a seriously provocative book on Bacon-style political communication with a freebie: snapshots of Australian democracy in action." (Professor Robert Faulkner, Boston College, USA)
