Review by Morning.star
A lot of good info in here though I'm not satisfied with the overall analysis (the 'great man' theory of history), which is simplistic and overlooks, downplays, or fails to understand the nature and importance of other factors involved in the rise of these tyrants (for example, direct foreign interference). In addition, the impression I got was that 'the people' are assumed to be largely ignorant, malleable, and not in any way responsible. I doubt that. At times, the people' can be just as misguided as those who lead them.
