Legislating and Governing

Legislating and Governing

(p.82) Chapter 4 Legislating and Governing
Being Political

Jack Corbett

University of Hawai'i Press

Looks at two other key functions of politicians: legislator and minister. It finds that politicians confront a paradox when seeking to enact change: they are both powerful and powerless. It concludes by arguing that recognition of this dilemma forces us to rethink our expectations of what can be achieved, with specific reference to the emerging literature on ‘developmental’ leadership.
