The authors, an international team of experts, guide students on an entertaining journey through key concepts, contemporary issues and debates in leadership studies.

Students can:

  • Understand how theory comes to life through a fascinating selection of case studies, ranging from political leaders such as Tony Blair to business leaders such as Steve Jobs, and from leadership in the arts to leadership in gang culture.
  • Be inspired by the ‘Leadership on screen’ feature, which encourages analysis of how leadership is represented in film and TV, including The Dark Knight, Game of Thrones, The Hunger Games and Grey′s Anatomy.
  • Visit the companion website for access to additional resources including author videos and journal articles.

Critical and rigorous, yet also easy to digest, this text is ideal for students and practitioners with or without any prior knowledge of the field.
