            How to Be a Dictator: The Cult of Personality in the Twentieth Century

            How to Be a Dictator: The Cult of Personality in the Twentieth Century (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            Mussolini, Hitler, Stalin, Mao Zedong, Kim Il-sung, Ceausescu, Mengistu of Ethiopia and Duvalier of Haiti. No dictator can rule through fear and violence alone. Naked power can be grabbed and held temporarily, but it never suffices in the long term. A tyrant who can compel his ow...n people to acclaim him will last longer. The paradox of the modern dictator is that he must create the illusion of popular support. Throughout the twentieth century, hundreds of millions of people were condemned to enthusiasm, obliged to hail their leaders even as they were herded down the road to serfdom. In How to Be a Dictator, Frank Dikoetter returns to eight of the most chillingly effective personality cults of the twentieth century. From carefully choreographed parades to the deliberate cultivation of a shroud of mystery through iron censorship, these dictators ceaselessly worked on their own image and encouraged the population at large to glorify them. At a time when democracy is in retreat, are we seeing a revival of the same techniques among some of today's world leaders? This timely study, told with great narrative verve, examines how a cult takes hold, grows, and sustains itself. It places the cult of personality where it belongs, at the very heart of tyranny.

            A celebration of the extraordinary life and work of Queen Elizabeth II. Leader, diplomat, mother and wife, Queen Elizabeth II is the most high-profile monarch in the world - her wide-ranging supporters are a testament to her enduring popularity. In this lavishly illustrated biogr...aphy bestselling author Sarah Gristwood guides us through her glorious reign. Taking you through nine decades, this comprehensive account plots the extraordinary events of Britain's longest-serving monarch, from the years before her birth through to the present day. Revealing details of her public and private lives, this book follows the key turning points for Elizabeth Windsor - her teenage years during the Second World War, meeting and marrying the Duke of Edinburgh, her ascension to the throne in 1952 and new additions to the Windsor family. As well as recounting the Golden and Diamond Jubilee celebrations, and the Royal Weddings, this book outlines what it means to be queen, explores the pastoral and official duties involved, and contemplates the future of the British monarchy. Accompanied by beautiful archival photography, Elizabeth is a tribute to our monarch's grand legacy.
