Much of the writing on charisma focuses on specific traits
associated with exceptional leaders, a practice that has broadened
the concept of charisma to such an extent that it loses its
distinctiveness OCo and therefore its utility. More particularly,
the conceptOCOs relevance to the study of social movements has not
moved beyond generalizations. The contributors to this volume renew
the debate on charismatic leadership from a historical perspective
and seek to illuminate the conceptOCOs relevance to the study of
social movements. The case studies here include such leaders as
Mahatma Gandhi; the architect of apartheid, Daniel F. Malan; the
heroine of the Spanish Civil War, Dolores Ibarruri (la pasionaria);
and Mao Zedong. These charismatic leaders were not just
professional politicians or administrators, but sustained a strong
symbiotic relationship with their followers, one that stimulated
devotion to the leader and created a real group identity."
