The Uses of Prime Ministers

One-man rule may be the oldest form of government but the reaction
against absolute monarchy has led to attempts at collective leadership
that frequently revert to hyperpersonalised power. The debate over
prime ministerial versus Cabinet government has been supplemented by
discussion of ministerial and bureaucratic shares in core executive decisions.
Cross-national comparison of the role of the Prime Minister has
constitutional, public opinion, electoral and majoritarion/coalition
dimensions. The career characteristics of Prime Ministers are contrasted
notably in terms of their social origins, previous offices held and
length of tenure of the premiership. The staff resources on which Prime
Ministers can draw directly are compared and the relative attractions of
semi-presidential and semi-parliamentary regimes in Central and
Eastern Europe are evaluated.
