Leadership, Populism, and Resistance

Edited by Kristin M.S. Bezio and George R. Goethals

Leadership, Populism, and Resistance draws upon the study of history, politics, policy, media, virtue, and heroism to examine the ways in which populism and popular movements have evolved, what we have learned (and failed to learn) from them, how we depict and discuss them through popular media and the press, and, finally, how we can understand virtue and heroism as a consequence—or reaction—to populism and popularity.

Chapter 6: Talking the talk: communication as the essential element of leadership

Hayley Gray-Hoehn

Abstract

The means by which leaders and followers communicate has been constitutive of Anglo-American democracy since its inception. Examining the adoption of communication technologies within the broader political intellectual history of Anglo-American democracy provides insight into the centrality of media ecology in determining the nature of leadership found throughout history. Using available mass communication technology in an epoch impacts leaders’ ability to gain, engage with, and consolidate power and shapes the relational dynamics between leaders and followers that in turn have shaped the evolution of Anglo-American government.
