Using cutting-edge research and real-life case studies, Cues teaches you which body language cues can instantly increase conviction and charisma, which vocal cues make you sound more confident, which verbal cues help to maximise trust and bonding, and which visual cues will make you stand out.

            The Age of The Strongman: How the Cult of the Leader Threatens Democracy around the World

            The Age of The Strongman: How the Cult of the Leader Threatens Democracy around the World (Hardback)

            In The Age of the Strongman, Gideon Rachman finds global coherence in the chaos of the new nationalism, leadership cults and the climate of liberal antipathy. We are in a new era- the age of the strongman. Authoritarian leaders have become a central feature of global politics. Ov...er the last decade, self-styled 'strongmen' have risen to power in capitals as diverse as Moscow, Delhi, Tokyo, Brasilia, Budapest, Rome, Ankara, Cairo, Riyadh and Manila. This trend began well before the EU referendum or Donald Trump's presidency and will continue regardless of the outcomes of impeachment or Brexit. There is no going back to the world that existed before 2016. When and where did this change take place? How long will this period last? And how likely is it to lead the world into war, economic collapse or unchecked environmental disaster? This is a story in three acts- the rise of the strongmen; the liberal fightback; and the probable consequences of the strongman era. From Trump, Putin and Bolsonaro, Erdogan, Xi and Modi, to the opposition of Merkel, Macron and Corbyn, Arden, Soros and Sanders, Rachman pays full attention to the strongman phenomenon in countries that are too often eclipsed, uncovers a complex interaction between rising Asian powers and a declining West, where very different reasons explain growing nationalisms. The Age of the Strongman finds the common themes in our local nightmares and offers a bold new paradigm for understanding our world; whilst others have tried to understand these situations individually, Gideon Rachman's will be the first truly global treatment of the new nationalism, underpinned by an exceptional level of access to world leaders and key actors in this drama.

            In The Age of the Strongman, Gideon Rachman finds global coherence in the chaos of the new nationalism, leadership cults and hostility to liberal democracy. We are in a new era- authoritarian leaders have become a central feature of global politics. Since 2000, self-styled strong...men have risen to power in capitals as diverse as Moscow, Beijing, Delhi, Brasilia, Budapest, Ankara, Riyadh and Washington. These leaders are nationalists and social conservatives, with little tolerance for minorities, dissent or the interests of foreigners. At home, they claim to be standing up for ordinary people against globalist elites; abroad, they posture as the embodiments of their nations. And everywhere they go, they encourage a cult of personality. What's more, these leaders are not just operating in authoritarian political systems but have begun to emerge in the heartlands of liberal democracy. While in the West the EU referendum and the election of Donald Trump in 2016 mark a watershed, the new era started at the beginning of the new millennium, when Vladimir Putin took power in Russia. How and why did this new style of strongman leadership arrive? How likely is it to lead the world into war or economic collapse? And what liberal forces are in place not only to keep these strongmen in check but to reverse the trend? With the world in the grip of a global pandemic and on the verge of environmental catastrophe, their actions have consequences not just for their nations but for the whole planet. From Trump, Putin and Bolsonaro to Erdogan, Xi and Modi, Gideon Rachman pays full attention to the strongman phenomenon around the world and uncovers the complex and often surprising interaction between these leaders. In the process, he finds the common themes in our local nightmares and offers a bold new paradigm for understanding our world. Whilst others have tried to understand the emergence of these new leaders individually, The Age of the Strongman provides the first truly global treat
