Editorial Reviews

Review

“The second edition of this landmark work on leadership, edited by Vecchio, could have been subtitled ‘From Good to Great,’ as it is an improvement on his first edition (1997), which is considered a seminal work. More specifically, this . . . compilation includes classic scholarly and practitioner-focused articles, selections representing current thinking on the topic of leadership, and a number of original selections written by the editor and his colleagues. Faculty and graduate students, as well as practitioners in executive development programs, will find this an excellent resource on leadership and management development. Highly recommended.” —Choice


“T[his] current edition has been updated where appropriate, while maintaining classic materials. Papers focus on an introduction and overview of leadership; power and influence; dysfunctional aspects of leadership; models of leadership; alternative views of leadership; and emerging issues.” —Journal of Economic Literature


“Vecchio compiles a mix of 35 scholarly and managerial writings that discuss major theories of leadership for undergraduate and graduate courses in leadership and management, or executive MBA courses. The writings are drawn from management and leadership journals and periodicals. Coverage is of the function of leaders, myths surrounding the concept, leadership tactics, problems that occur from abuse of power and influence, formal models, contemporary views, and the roles of societal and organizational cultures, including gender issues.” —Research Book News

Format: Paperback
Now featuring eight new chapters, this expanded second edition of "Leadership: Understanding The Dynamics Of Power And Influence In Organizations" compiled and edited by Robert P. Vecchio (who holds the Franklin D. Schurz Chair in Management at the University of Notre Dame) is a completely up-to-date anthology of key writings on the subject of contemporary leadership in both its functional and dysfunctional aspects. The contributions are grouped around the themes of Introduction and Overview; Power and Influence; Dysfunctional Aspects of Leadership; Models of Leadership; Alternative Views of Leadership; and Emerging Issues. The thirty-five articles and essays comprising this 600-page opus range from 'Concepts of Leadership' by Bernard M. Bass, to 'Managing Your Boss' by John J. Gabarro and John P. Kotter, to 'The Dark Side of Leadership' by Jay A. Conger, to 'Can Leaders Learn to Lead?' by Victor H. Vroom, to 'It's Not Easy Being Green: Jealous and Envy in the Workplace' by Robert P. Vecchio. "Leadership" is a seminal body of work and especially recommended for both its standards of scholarship and its appropriateness for academic library reference collections and the supplemental reading lists of students aspiring to leadership positions in government, business, education, and community organizations.
