Log-in for full text

This chapter discusses lessons for the study of leadership and foreign policy drawn from the Iraq war. First, leadership matters. Second, leadership has both external worldview and internal management style dimensions. Third, assertive worldviews do not necessary lead to assertive management styles. Fourth, leaders should be studied in combination with other key policy makers rather than separately. Fifth, the Iraq war was decisively shaped by Bush and Rumsfeld as leaders.
