For thirty-three years and through three editions, Bass & Stodgill'sHandbook of Leadershiphas been the indispensable "bible" for every serious student of leadership. Since the 3rd edition came out in 1990, the field of leadership has exploded. This completely revised and updated fourth edition reflects the growth and changes in the study of leadership over the past 17 years. This new edition offers shifts in both content and method. Ethics and transformational leadership, for example, have become increasing subjects of inquiry. Distinctly separate fields of inquiry, such as political science and psychology, have been joined in this edition to build a broader appreciation of the phenomenon of leadership. Throughout the Handbook, the contributions from cognitive social psychology and the social, political, communications, and administrative sciences have been expanded.

Review:

"An exhaustive compilation and cataloguing...done in a manner that makes the book an invaluable reference tool...We must all be grateful for the accomplishment of a Herculean task." -- Contemporary Psychology

"Extremely well-written. The research studies are cautiously interpreted and concern for methodological deficiencies is continually evident. The organization and syntheses of the research findings are excellent." -- Personnel Psychology

"The Handbook clearly will become a standard reference work...An extremely important contribution to the area of leadership." -- Wall Street Review

"Encyclopedic...undoubtedly the most complete work on leadership." -- Sociology

"The author has hit the mark in this magnificent effort toward reducing the current confusion in the study of leadership...Highly recommended for reading by those who are required to practice leadership, for those who wish to seriously study it, and for those who are responsible for the teaching of the subject." -- Naval War College Review

"Comprehensive, factual and reflects a lot of hard work. It is an antidote for books of speculation and personal opinion that often mislead a manager more than help him." -- Industrial Bookshelf

"Probably the most complete anthology of concepts available under one cover." -- Parameters, U.S. Army War College

"Ranges widely in its selections, drawing upon research findings derived from the small group, as well as from larger institutions and organizations...Without a doubt this volume will continue to be a definitive source for understanding leadership for many years." -- Journal Of Education For Social Work
