Vol. 5 Iss.12: Movers and Shakers






Movers and Shakers

World leaders are the powerful and influential – usually politicians – who determine the destinies of nations, tribes and sects. History is replete with examples of heroic leaders and the villainous, the savvy and the clueless. We are better judges of past leaders because their decisions have had a chance to play out – Neville Chamberlain may have been a popular leader in the 1930s, but his policy of appeasement toward Hitler’s Germany tarnishes his reputation today.  We have selected documents and relics of some influential world leaders, past and present. Purchase one or more by Friday, August 1, and receive a 10% discount.
