  1. Leadership and the Unmasking of Authenticity

    Leadership and the Unmasking of Authenticity

    Edited by Brent E. Cusher, Mark A. Menaldo
    Leadership and the Unmasking of Authenticity presents a philosophic treatment of the core concept of authentic leadership theory, with a view toward illuminating how authors in the history of philosophy have understood authenticity as an ideal for humanity. Such an approach requires a broader view of the historical origins of authenticity and the examination of related ideas such as self-knowledge and deception. The chapters of this volume illuminate the conflict between the contemporary understanding of authenticity and traditional philosophy by revisiting the ideas of thinkers who express self-knowledge as a cornerstone of their philosophy.

  2. Leadership and Sexuality

    Leadership and Sexuality

    Edited by James K. Beggan, Scott T. Allison
    Although both leadership and sexuality are important and heavily researched topics, there is little work that addresses the interaction of the two areas. Leadership and Sexuality: Power, Principles, and Processes is a scholarly synthesis of leadership principles with issues related to sexuality and sexual policy-making. The authors’ multi-disciplinary analysis of the topic examines sexuality in the context of many different kinds of leadership, exploring both the good and the bad aspects of leadership and sexuality.

    Reconstruction and the Arc of Racial (in)Justice

    Edited by Julian M. Hayter, George R. Goethals

It traces the history of struggles for racial justice from the post US Civil War Reconstruction through the Jim Crow era, the Civil Rights and Voting Rights decades of the 1950s and 1960s to the present day.

    Edited by Cristina M. Giannantonio, Amy E. Hurley-Hanson

    Critical Perspectives on Leadership

    Edited by Jeanette Lemmergaard, Sara Louise Muhr
    Situated in the field of critical leadership studies, the chapters of this book set out to challenge the general assumption that emotionality is the antithesis of rationality.

  19. Policy Alienation and the Power of Professionals

    Policy Alienation and the Power of Professionals

    Lars Tummers
    This eloquent book by Lars Tummers develops a framework to understand these important issues with policy implementation, using the innovative concept of ‘policy alienation’. Policies in healthcare, social security, and education are analyzed. The conclusions challenge the common assertions regarding the reasons why professionals resist policies. For instance, the impact of professional influence, often viewed as an end in itself, is nuanced. Lars Tummers reveals that it is far more important for professionals that a policy is meaningful for society and for their clients, than they have an influence in its shaping. Learn More

  20. Leadership and Cooperation in Academia

    Leadership and Cooperation in Academia

    Edited by Roger Sugden, Marcela Valania, James R. Wilson
    Across the world academic institutions are being questioned by their stakeholders and pressured to change. Answering these questions requires that academics and professional managers in universities think about their work, its value and organisation. The book highlights the need for space and stimulus to reflect on the responsibilities, roles and expectations that they identify for themselves, and that others place upon them – then, they might be better able to understand and to act. Similarly, policymakers and higher education commentators need the space and stimulus to reflect on the role of universities. This book will provide this space and an invaluable contribution to the stimulus. Learn More
