Among no people was the longing for redemption so lively and the
expectation of a speedy end of the world so strong as among the Jews.
Since the Babylonian captivity (586–536 B.C.) the former Jewish outlook
upon the world had undergone a great change. Fifty years had been spent
by the Israelites in the land of the stranger. For two hundred years after
their return to their own land they were under Persian overlordship. As a

The leadership style, for instance, that is required by a head of corporate security would obviously be vastly different from the leadership style of an art museum director: authoritative versus creative or charismatic. Identifying the leadership style f or an organization by using this approach includes. Within democracies a collegial style of leadership is too often characterized as weakness and its advantages overlooked. Even in authoritarian regimes, a more collective leadership is a lesser evil compared with personal dictatorship where cultivation of the myth of the strong leader is often a prelude to oppression and carnage.

consequence of this they were in close connection politically and
economically with the Achæmenidean Empire, and this did not cease when
Alexander overthrew the Persian power and brought the whole Eastern
world under Greek influence. During this lengthy period Persian modes of
thinking and Persian religious views had influenced in many ways the old
Jewish opinions, and had introduced a large number of new ideas. First of
all the extreme dualism of the Persians had impressed a distinctly dual
character upon Jewish Monotheism. God and the world, which in the old
ideas had often mingled with one another, were separated and made to
stand in opposition to each other. Following the same train of thought, the
old national God Jahwe, in imitation of the Persian Ahuramazda
(Ormuzd), had developed from a God of fire, light, and sky into a God of
supernatural purity and holiness. Surrounded by light and enthroned in
the Beyond, like Ahuramazda, the source of all life, the living God held
intercourse with his creatures upon the earth only through the
instrumentality of a court of angels. These messengers of God or
intermediate beings in countless numbers moved between heaven and
earth upon his service. And just as Angromainyu (Ahriman), the evil, was
opposed to Ahuramazda, the good, and the struggle between darkness and
light, truth and falsehood, life and death, was, according to Persian ideas,
reproduced in the course of earthly events, so the Jews too ascribed to
Satan the rôle of an adversary of God, a corrupter of the divine creation,
and made him, as Prince of this world and leader of the forces of hell,
measure his strength with the King of Heaven.

WITH A NEW FOREWORD BY THE AUTHOR CHOSEN BY BILL GATES AS A BOOK OF THE YEAR 2016 Archie Brown challenges the widespread belief that 'strong leaders', dominant individual wielders of power, are the most successful and admirable. Within authoritarian regimes, a collective leadership is a lesser evil compared with a personal dictatorship. Within democracies, although ‘strong leaders’ are seldom as strong or independent as they purport to be, the idea that just one person is entitled to take the big decisions is harmful and should be resisted. Examining Franklin D. Roosevelt and Mikhail Gorbachev, Deng Xiaoping and Nelson Mandela, Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair amongst many others, this landmark study pinpoints different types and qualities of leadership. Overturning the popular notion of the strong leader, it makes us rethink preconceptions about what it means to lead.
