Editorial Reviews


 Praise for Prior Editions:

“This edition is another home run for Rosenbach and Taylor, a skillfully organized volume that offers insightful and thought-provoking articles on concepts and examples of leadership useful to researchers as well as to senior practitioners of the art of leadership.”—Lawrence P. Taylor, retired American diplomat and former director of the Foreign Service Institute and United States Ambassador to Estonia
“The single best book of readings on leadership around—by far.”—Warren Bennis, University of Southern California
“A wide-ranging, sophisticated, and illuminating collection of recent work on leadership, brilliantly reflecting the important progress that has been made and laying the groundwork for the even more important work that lies ahead.”—James MacGregor Burns—author of Leadership
“In each edition, Rosenbach and Taylor present multiple perspectives on the leader-manager debate, leader tasks and roles, and leader-follower relationships. The inclusion of leadership development on a variety of continua and global leadership add important breadth to this volume. Depth added by a greater diversity of authors makes this an important resource for anyone interested in critical leadership issues.”
— Marilyn J. Amey, Michigan State University

“Rosenbach and Taylor have compiled a wonderful collection that soars in its prose on leadership. The editors have collated writings that not only speak to modern day issues but resonate with the realities of bygone situations and personalities, in particular a look at the excesses exhibited by a surprising number of today’s executive that remind why the Athenians made hubris a high crime. Without a doubt, the collection distinguishes itself as a sophisticated yet accessible theory-to-practice reader that will equally satisfy the skeptics as well as the students of leadership.”
— Alphonse Keasley, Ph.D., University of Colorado

"Rosenbach and Taylor have given us the very best and widest range of leadership articles available in one cover. From leadership classics to the latest challenges facing today’s executives; from the deepest internal factors of ethics and charisma to the broadest macro issues of global leadership, the sixth edition is the premier collection for stimulating discussion across the range of 'contemporary issues in leadership.'"
— Robert Ginnett, coauthor of Leadership: Enhancing the Lessons of Experience
