Written by an author team from one of Europe's leading management schools, this is an accessible and comprehensive leadership textbook, designed with post-experience and Mba students in mind. The book combines highly up-to-date research with a wealth of real-world case studies to help readers make the transition from theory to practice. This student-focussed text draws together the latest key insights and research from contemporary academic writers in a way that is both clear and highly engaging. Divided into two main parts, the book guides the reader thematically through the big issues and debates in the field, including the leadership versus management debate, team performance, and the question of whether leaders are born or made. The first part of the book, 'Key themes in leadership', addresses the core topics which have shaped leadership thinking for academics and practitioners over the last fifty years. While the second part, 'Hot topics in leadership', is devoted to cutting-edge debates within the field, and issues such as strategic leadership, ethical leadership, and leading change. This clear and logical structure is combined with carefully designed learning features including blog boxes, film and media parallels, and discussion points to develop and support your learning, while the critical approach invites you to exercise your thinking skills and develop your own perspectives on the material presented. The authors draw upon their years' of academic and business experience to offer an insight into this important and dynamic field; making this text a must read for students concerned with understanding or practicing leadership.

This is a great book about leadership. The critical perspective should be compulsory in every textbook. The authors are able to bring leadership to life. We can picture ourselves in the narratives and dramas that they create: and thus we learn. Ken Parry, Professor of Leadership, Bond University
This textbook is more user friendly than other books on the subject. The way in which the authors provide examples and relevant cases sets it apart. Dr Stuart Paul, Lecturer in Leadership, University of the West of Scotland
