Leadership perspectives.

Ed. by Alan Hooper.

Ashgate Publishing Co.


563 pages




The 33 essays in this book were all previously published in peer-reviewed books and journals such as Harvard Business Review, J. of Management, and Sloan Management Review; they are compiled here to present in one source the best public writing on the subject of leadership. Business students, academic researchers, leadership consultants, and practical leaders are the intended audience. Discussions involve both abstract theory and explicit practical techniques, and coverage includes relationships, power, identity and difference, imagination, and spirituality. Specific topics include: the psychodynamics of organizational totalitarianism, the effect of leader and follower emotional intelligence on performance and attitude, the executive as coach, power failure in management circuits, managing oneself, planning on the left side of the brain and managing on the right, and the theory of charismatic leadership. There is an author index, but no subject index.
