2 Avis
Leadership scholars have made many inroads in understanding leadership; however, making sense of the thousands of studies and hundreds of books is a difficult task, which is why many still incorrectly think that leadership is an elusive phenomenon. The Nature of Leadership is the first concise and integrated volume that addresses current issues in leadership research, including emerging topics such as gender, culture, and ethics.
