From the cover: “The twelve portraits of power presented in this book are Lloyd George, Kemal Ataturk, Lenin, Ghandi, Mussolini, Hitler, Churchill, Roosevelt, Stalin, Marshal Tito, Nasser, and Mao Tse-Tung.

The background given to the twelve personalities traces the significant movements of their time and provides a fascinating and highly readable history.

Events are described in their wider, more fundamental contexts. For instance, the recent struggles in India and China are not seen merely as anti-colonial struggles, but as consequences of the spread of literacy and the growth of national pride.”
