The Hubris Syndrome: the intoxication of power

LSE public lecture

Lord Owen will explore the effects of political power on politicians themselves and investigate the concept of the Hubris Syndrome and its impact on politicians including Tony Blair, George Bush and Margaret Thatcher.

Lord Owen has been Foreign Secretary, leader of the Social Democratic party, and now a Crossbencher in the Lords. He was trained as a medical doctor, and has long been interested in the effect of ill health on heads of government. Among many books, he is the author of Balkan Odyssey, a powerful autobiography, Time to Declare, and a poetry anthology, Seven Ages. His most recent book entitled The Hubris Syndrome: Bush, Blair and the Intoxication of Power was published in July 2007 by Politico's Publishing Ltd.
