Local notes

This is an accessible, lucid and stimulating account of the hidden psychology of politics and the hidden politics of the psyche. It is packed with original and imaginative ideas on economics, nationalism, "good-enough" leadership, the citizen and the state, women and men, fatherhood, and the citizen as a "therapist of the world". The author offers trenchant and timely critiques of the crisis in contemporary politics. The book will be important for politicians, people in management studies and the media, members of the therapy world, and all political activists.
