Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

The sixth edition of this popular anthology continues its interdisciplinary approach to the topic of leadership. Reviewing hundreds of articles published since the fifth edition, William Rosenbach and Robert Taylor collected new, quality essays describing components of leadership such as vision, values, culture, development, and outcomes. This new material, combined with classic essays from prior editions, forms a collection of work that clearly illustrates the contradictions and paradoxes of leadership from historical to contemporary perspectives and global to individual considerations. The interdisciplinary approach to presentations of cutting-edge research and applications of leadership set this book apart from other collections. Contemporary issues are updated to reflect the best thinking of our time. Without confusing leadership with management, the book clarifies the role of gender in leadership effectiveness, reemphasizes followership as an integral component of leadership, and presents parts and chapters in a practical order. With classic selections retained and nine new essays added, Contemporary Issues in Leadership, Sixth Edition presents a renewed framework for understanding leaders and leadership from a contemporary perspective.


"The single best book of readings on leadership around-by far."
—Warren Bennis, University of Southern California
