ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the bias of leadership experts towards leaders, to the disfavor of followers and the emerging power of followers. Media attention in the 2008 presidential campaign is observed to be on the contestants rather than on the voters. The same is held true in Pakistan events, where the policy focus is on Pervez Musharraf rather than on the Pakistanis. On the other hand, the importance of followers as shown by monks taking on the military junta in Myanmar, is also pointed out.
