Leadership studies is booming on American campuses, but many are skeptical - is this new field more than a gimmick to amuse students and woo donors? The authors of the essays in this volume are as skeptical as any critics of the field but they see hope for Leadership studies if the field can focus more on Leadership as a process of inquiry than as a set of techniques.
