    Traditional Classics on Leadership

    Edited by J. T. Wren, Douglas A. Hicks, Terry L. Price
    Leadership might be thought of as the process that facilitates the achievement of group or societal objectives. As such, it has been at the centre of learned reflection and debate from earliest times. Philosophers, religious leaders, political theorists, and reformers have struggled with (and argued about) the moral purpose of leadership, how individuals and societies can go about achieving desired ends, and what role leaders and followers play in the process. This volume draws together in one place some of the best thinking on these and other issues from the great minds of the Western tradition. Taken together, the selections of this volume provide a rich and textured source for an initial understanding of some of the central issues of leadership. Learn More
