In nine pages this paper discusses Max Weber's Economy and Society, Ann Ruth Wilner's The Spellbinders, Charismatic Political Leadership, Charles Lindholm's Charisma, Neil Postman' Amusing Ourselves to Death, and Richard Sennett's The Fall of the Public Man in a consideration of how popular political consent does not necessarily require charismatic political leaders. Five other sources are cited in the bibliography.
