About the Author:

Review:

'This book has the potential of being a core text for academics, research students (MSc, PhD, DBA) and academic-consultants.'--Javier Marcos

'A distinctive book written in an eloquent style and manner that captures the readers' imagination of the past, present and future perception of leadership. It highlights and draws together the main concepts covered in each chapter and provides a very good basis for understanding leadership. This book is readable, credible and avoids jargon. Thus, it helps both UG and PG students to conceptualise leadership at a higher level.'--Denis Hyams-Ssekas

'The chapters set out some of the key issues in leadership studies at the current time. They successfully combine a review of the theoretical position in leadership and give a critical assessment of these theories in the current leadership climate.'--DR. Claire Collins

'This book is well constructed and very well researched. It has a clearly thought out logical flow with enough material to inform and challenge both undergraduate and postgraduate students.'--Lise Georgeson

'Beautifully printed and presented, written with style and flair by two respected lecturers in business studies at the University of the West of England's Bristol-based business school, it reminded me of how many decades have passed since my own studies, and how much I would have welcomed a text book such as this, had one been available at that time....[W]hile I do feel it would interest anyone fascinated by the history of Leadership, a critical appraisal of where it stands today, how it impacts on so many other disciplines that are usually not treated at length in other texts, and where it is heading, it is clearly of real interest and usefulness to university and postgraduate students, to whom it will provide a lot of food for thought and study.'--Terry Goodwin
