More Information
The International Library of Leadership brings together in one place the most significant writings on leadership, the process by which groups, organizations, and societies seek to satisfy their needs and achieve their objectives.

Volume 1 focuses on classic discussions of perennial leadership issues including the moral purpose of leadership, the nature of legitimate authority, and the role of followers. Volume 2 turns to investigations of leadership in the modern era and makes available the seminal social scientific works that inaugurated the modern theories of leadership. Volume 3 builds upon the analyses of power, culture, and gender in the first two volumes to address current ethical, democratic, and international challenges of leadership.

This three-volume collection is designed to offer a sophisticated and substantive understanding of what is perhaps the most important social phenomenon of our age.
Critical Acclaim
‘. . . absolute classics. . . they comprise one of the finest compendiums of works on the subject. The collection superbly addresses an eclectic analysis of leadership while illustrating the evolution of its study. . . The university and teaching fraternity will use the material widely, and major organisations in the HR and learning and development fields, leadership analysts and serious students would all benefit from having it on the shelves. As well as being a reference, The International Library of Leadership will have a strong applied focus.’
– Geoff De Lacy, HR Monthly

‘The editors should be commended for undertaking this initiative. They have certainly succeeded in accomplishing one of their objectives which was to “provide easy access to the best thinking of the great minds of past and present” . . . I applaud the inclusion of substantial portions of each writer’s argument so that the reader can gain a firsthand appreciation of the author's position. . . this collection is obviously ideally placed to become a valuable desk reference book.’
– Brad Jackson, Journal of Management Studies

‘This collection is an invaluable reference for anyone interested in the study of leadership. With readings that span from ancient times to the present, we see how questions about the power, morality, and the leader–follower relationship are an ongoing part of the human condition.’
– Joanne B. Ciulla, University of Richmond, US
