Editorial Reviews

Review

Through a series of probing theoretical reflections and incisive close readings, ranging over important texts of both critical theory and literature, Saunders's book explores the haunting role of lamentation in modernity. She sees lamentation as an aesthetic and political form interacting with traumatic loss and traversing various genres, discourses, and rhetorical traditions. Transnational and interdisciplinary in scope, this excellent study offers sustained insight into crucial components of contemporary thought and culture.' - Dominick LaCapra, Cornell University 'This is a scholarly and intellectually ambitious work. Saunders employs a daunting range of theoretical sources to support her convincing argument. A real contribution to the study of lamentation and the literature of modernism.' - Gail Holst-Warhaft, Cornell University JV

He advances instead a spatially orientated approach which views states as one of multiple layers of a global social space. Regionalization represents the construction of new layers in an effort to search for an institutional fix to the challenges of globalization. 1 Provides a critique of IR theory from a spatial perspective 2 Claims that questions of space are central to global politics and economics 3 Adapts critical and postmodern geography to IR JV

Everest Climbing Disaster Destructive Goal Pursuit The Problem of Goalodicy The Limits of Leadership The Breakdown of Learning in Teams PART II: OVERCOMING DESTRUCTIVE GOAL PURSUIT Learning Teamwork Ethical Decision-Making PART III: REMEDIES: EVEREST AS A SOURCE OF LEARNING ABOUT LEADERSHIP From Destructive to Productive Pursuit Rethinking the Role of Leader Leaders extol the value of pursuing challenging goals, but evidence suggests that this leads to disaster as often as success. Drawing upon real-life stories, including the Mount Everest Climbing Disaster, the author shows how destructive goal pursuit can cause the breakdown of learning in teams and calls for rethinking the role of the leader. 1 Kayes is an award-winning author and leader in the field of organizational behaviour. He has been repeatedly recognized for the quality of his work and has an outstanding reputation 2 The book offers a groundbreaking approach to leadership which draws upon the compelling story of the well known 1996 Mount Everest Climbing Disaster (as recounted in the book Into Thin Air , which is currently being adapted into a film) 3 An engaging narrative shows how goal-setting can go awry and end in disaster, and offers practical strategies for the reader to use 'This book takes the concept of learning from experience in a new, although not completely unfamiliar direction. The events serve as a rich example of how learning from experience is central to leadership success in dynamic environments. By identifying the negative and potentially disastrous consequences of the non-reflective pursuit of ambitious goals, this book offers a sage warning to those of us who live in a culture where high goals are a praiseworthy status symbols and relentless pursuit of them a sign of moral superiority. The book reflects a growing problem that can be seen in many different situations. Leaders who set high goals and pursue them regardless of the consequences are seen as principled, while the leader who learns from experience and modifies goals accordingly runs the risk of being seen as wishy-washy.' David Kolb, author, 'Experiential Learning: Experience as the source of Learning and Developmen't and Professor of Organizational Behavior, Case Western Reserve University. Alice Kolb, President, Experience Based Learning Systems, Inc. 'Destructive Goal Pursuit not only has debunked as myopic and maladapative, the mystique that has surrounded goal setting, management by objectives, and other performance-driven incentive schemes, but has done so by balancing scholarly depth with general accessibility. Dr. Kayes has pulled off that rarest of authorial feats; a splendidly written book that-whether used in a leadership course or for personal development-will enchant and challenge, disturb and provoke, inspire and educate.' James R. Bailey, Professor of Management, George Washington University, Editor, 'Academy of Management Learning & Education' 'The Everest events teach many lessons about doing business in the global context. A must read for understanding the importance of building human capital. Leaders at every level of an organization will gain insight into topics as diverse as leading in a global context, building relationships with followers, and how leaders serve as the keepers of organization survival. Professor Kayes moves beyond the hype surrounding the events, to provide lessons on leadership, teamwork and ethical decision making.' David Stirling, Partner, Human Capital Group, IBM Consulting Services 'Leadership is more than just motivating and ordering, leadership is about developing others. Professor Kayes paves the way for a new and exciting way to see how leaders come into being. Whether you are leading in extreme situation like Everest, or more common settings, most leaders experience pressure to achieve continually higher and more challenging goals. This book provides both the warning signs and the ways to overcome destructive goal pursuit.' Lieutenant Colonel, Nate Allen, U. S. Army, co-founder of CompanyCommand.com JV
