As we move through the 21st century, the human race is confronted with seemingly overwhelming problems: global climate change, diminishing oil reserves, economic and political instability, the ongoing threat of terrorism, and growing income inequality. Never before has there been so great a need for dynamic leaders to step into the arena of public life and offer new visions for the future of our species and our planet. That's where this book comes in. INTO THE ARENA: A PHILOSOPHY OF LEADERSHIP has been written with the next generation of leaders in mind. Unlike many leadership texts that are geared almost exclusively to the field of business, INTO THE ARENA adopts a philosophical and historical approach to the study of leadership that is applicable to prospective leaders in any field - business, government, law, social services, and education, among others. Using an approach to leadership that has been neglected in recent years, the Great Man, or, more properly speaking, the Great Individual Theory of Leadership, INTO THE ARENA begins with the premise that great leaders can shape events and, in doing so, influence the course of human history. We believe that with the proper training and with the right kinds of formative experiences, most individuals can indeed rise up to the challenges and rewards that exist in the great arena in which leadership is exercised.
