- 'The enormous demands on leadership in today's world - the rise of militant followings; the struggle of long-suppressed people to rise to leadership positions; the heightened demand for moral, principled leadership - all these dynamic forces contribute to making this encyclopedia timely - and timeless' - James MacGregor Burns, Williams College, author of "Leadership" and winner of the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award. 'This authoritative reference source, edited by Pulitzer prize-winning presidential biographer Burns and written by some 400 scholars from 17 countries, comprehensively covers a burgeoning new field of academic study-leadership. Its scope is amazingly broad, reflecting the interdisciplinary applications of the subject. The 373 alphabetically arranged entries are accompanied by 150 photos and other illustrations, with 300 sidebars drawn from a variety of sources' - "The Library Journal". 'Approximately one third of the entries provide biographical information about men and women who have made significant contributions to the field. Other categories include case studies, leadership studies, followership, women and gender, personal characteristics of model leaders, leadership styles, and leadership theories. The appendixes following the main body of the work include a six-page select bibliography of books related to leadership, a directory of 250 leadership programs with accompanying mission statements, key foreign policy and war speeches of U.S. presidents, and excerpts from sacred texts illuminating "the role of leaders and leadership concepts." Because of its breadth, ease of navigation, high level of scholarship, clear writing and practical format, this model encyclopedia should help establish leadership as a normative field of study.
