Praise for the first edition:

′At last a well-written, balanced and insightful British book on leadership. It is probable that every theory and assertion of consequence is commented upon. A real tour-de-force.′

- Emeritus Professor Gerry Randell, University of Bradford School of Management

′Theory and Practice of Leadership is an all encompassing, global review of examples and case studies that is both comprehensive and easily adaptable to almost any situation one would encounter in leading people.′

- Richard J. Conwell, Nova Southeastern University, Journal of Applied Management and Entrepreneurship

If you are looking for a more holistic and critical take on the field of leadership, look no further! The second edition of this engaging and highly-respected text offers an exploration of leadership in a variety of contexts, both profit-orientated and non-profit.

  • Abundant examples and illustrations, together with detailed explanations of how they apply in practice.
  • A companion website with an Instructor′s Manual, PowerPoint slides, links to additional case studies and full-text journal articles.
