Since the 16th century, with the publication of  Machiavelli's The Prince, readers have shown an enduring curiosity about what makes a good leader.  Leadership in the New Millennium: Avoiding the Culture of Corruption invites us to consider the moral character of the leader, asserting that great leadership begins with the self and the personal characteristics of the self.  Without a sense of moral integrity, the book argues, a leader does not – and cannot – lead.  Knowledge of bureaucracy and technical expertise are not enough to create great leaders; they must be honest and responsible, and, perhaps most importantly, see themselves as the servants of those they are called upon to lead.  The author, a sociology professor, is also an ordained priest, and he brings a unique perspective to his topic.

 

Drawing on examples from contemporary politics as well as historical examples, the book puts forth a new approach to understanding leadership.  With its focus on  the humanistic aspects of leadership, character building, and soft power, it provides an unusual perspective among leadership books. While instructors in ethics and sociology courses will find it particularly useful, it will also prove invaluable in business and law school coursework, and should find a prominent place on the bookshelf of any future leader.
