Encyclopedia of leadership: A-E
SAGE, 19 մրտ, 2004 թ. - 1927 էջ
From the earliest times people have been entranced by stories about leaders - about Greek city state rulers, Roman consuls, Chinese emperors, religious potentates, military conquerors, and politicians. Perhaps more importantly, leadership is a challenge and an opportunity facing millions of people in their professional and personal lives. The Encyclopedia of Leadership brings together for the first time everything that is known and truly matters about leadership as part of the human experience. Developed by the award-winning editorial team at Berkshire Publishing Group, the Encyclopedia includes hundreds of articles, written by 400 leading scholars and experts from 17 countries, exploring leadership theories and leadership practice. Over a third of the work - some 500,000 words - is devoted to biographical essays and to case studies focused on leaders (and their followers). Articles and sidebars show leadership in action-in corporations and state houses, schools, churches, small businesses, and nonprofit organizations. Questions The Encyclopedia of Leadership will answer: What is a leader? What is a great leader? How does someone become a leader? What are the types of leadership?
