`It is refreshing when you come across a clear, well-written book about leadership that is not peddling the latest gimmick, buzzword or quick fix. What makes this work really refreshing is the emphasis on the critical dimension in the title and the breadth of the author's own experience of work' - Times Higher Education `An excellent resource for examining and analyzing leadership from different perspectives' - New Horizons in Adult Education and Human Resource Development `In a highly original way, taking “Critical Theory” as a point of departure, Dr Western helps us to obtain greater insight into the enigma of leadership' - Manfred Kets de Vries `One of the "most promising" forthcoming management books for 2007' - European Academy of Management (EURAM) `Leadership A Critical Text is an outstanding addition to the Leadership literature. This is an excellent text which takes the field to new heights in the first decade of the 21st Century' - Professor Cary L. Cooper, CBE, Professor of Organizational Psychology and Health at Lancaster University `The book provides a unique and much needed 'voice' to the field of leadership studies, and will have a significant impact worldwide' - Professor Jonathan Gosling, Director of the Leadership Centre Exeter University Providing a critical review and analysis of the key debates within leadership, this book challenges the notion of the individual or hero leader.

You already have what it takes to be an effective leader. But to be the best leader you can be, you need to recognise what really works and then build your skills in these areas. Leadership, Plain & Simple gives you a powerful, actionable framework to help you do just this, by focusing on the only three leadership practices you'll ever need.

A Pulitzer Prize–winning historian examines transformational leaders from Moses to Machiavelli to Martin Luther King Jr. in this “impressive book” (The Washington Post). Historian and political scientist James MacGregor Burns has spent much of his career documenting the use and misuse of power by leaders throughout history. In this groundbreaking study, Burns examines the qualities that make certain leaders—in America and elsewhere—succeed as transformative figures. Through insightful anecdotes and historical analysis, Burns scrutinizes the charisma, vision, and persuasive power of individuals able to imbue followers with a common sense of purpose, from the founding fathers to FDR, Gandhi to Napoleon. Since its original publication in 1970, Leadership has set the standard for scholarship in the field.

Lessons on making effective, inspiring decisions from case studies of former real-life leaders in times of crisis. Anyone can claim to be a leader in times of calm, but crisis situations sift the true visionaries from the false ones. Recent events in global affairs make it increasingly apparent that nations must cultivate and encourage true leaders—and eschew false ones—if they hope to survive. Fortunately, effective leadership is a skill that can be taught, especially through the study of exemplary figures of the past. In each chapter of On Leadership, Dr. Donald J. Palmisano cites an example of positive or negative action as a source from which to glean essential leadership lessons. Through guided analysis of each real-life situation, readers will learn detailed, practical methods and strategies for becoming true leaders. This second edition includes two new chapters which are highly applicable to today’s issues: “Leadership in Crisis: The British Petroleum Gulf Oil Spill,” and “Emerging Leaders in a Time of Crisis.” On Leadership provides crucial advice for those who aspire to become effective leaders in any position.
