Description
Leadership is an important theme of everyday conversation and debate and a central topic of academic study. Leading and Leadership illustrates that the concept of leadership is at once both attractive and subject to suspicion. We demand vision of those who would lead us, and we demand to know where leaders are going to take us. Everyone interested in the meaning of leadership should read this volume.

Editor Timothy Fuller includes essays ranging from classical to contemporary -- Confucius, Max Weber, Lao Tzu, James Gardner, Plato, De Jouvenal, Francis Bacon, Hegel, St. Thomas Aquinas, Kierkegaard, Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Woodrow Wilson, among others. Fuller chooses them because they do not isolate the study of leadership from a larger consideration of the human condition. They insist on the indispensability of insight based on experience enlarged by historical and philososphical study. By returning these voices to the conversation on leadership, Fuller puts in perspective current thinking about leading and leadership.

Leading and Leadership asks that we assess the advantages and disadvantages of leadership without discouraging aspirations to leadership. This volume is especially helpful for those who think they may be able to accept the demands leadership will pose. These readings also speak to the interested citizen who wants to understand, in larger perspective, the dynamics of contemporary affairs. This is a rich collection that will reward every reader.
