This is the provocative argument put forward in this unique book which results from the collaboration of practising politicians, organisational and political consultants, scholars of mythology and culture, and Jungian analysts from several countries.The first part of the book focuses on leadership and vision, and features a reflection on myth and leadership by former U.S.

Senator Bill Bradley. The second part deals with the way the theme of the one and the many works itself out in politics today. From the perspective of the many, there are chapters on factionalism, ethnic strife, genocide and multiculturalism. From the perspective of the one, there are chapters on the economic myth and gender politics showing how these bring coherence to todays confused political scene, culminating in the suggestion that the modern political psyche is itself in the midst of a rite of passage.The relevance of the book to the practice and study of politics, mainstream and marginal, cannot be overemphasised and the book will provide stimulating reading for practitioners and students in these areas as well as for those engaged in psychological work such as therapy, counselling or analysis.
