Contemporary Issues in Leadership / Edition 6

Leadership—and leadership studies—are in flux. The fifth edition of this popular anthology continues its interdisciplinary approach to the topic of leadership. The new edition offers readings divided into four sections, respectively, on the human dimensions of leadership, on defining leadership values, on lessons from great leaders of the past, and the dilemmas and paradoxes of good leadership. Tapping the wisdom of 4 classic articles and 17 new readings, William Rosenbach and Robert Taylor present a renewed framework for understanding leaders and leadership from a contemporary perspective.

Author Biography: Robert L. Taylor (Lt. Col., USAF, ret.) is dean of the College of Business and Public Administration, at the University of Louisville. William E. Rosenbach (Col., USAF, ret.) is the Evans Professor of Eisenhower Leadership Studies and professor of management at Gettysburg College.
