The recent proliferation of populist movements worldwide - along with the often dangerous, demagogic leaders that accompany them - have prompted questions about the underlying conditions that give rise to such troubling developments.Leadership Unhinged: Essays on the Ugly, the Bad and the Weird examines what is going on at a deeper level, both collectively and individually, between leaders and followers. Employing theories derived from psychoanalytic psychology, developmental psychology, neuroscience and evolutionary psychology, these essays help to unravel and expose the pathological leader-follower dynamics that generate such movements.
