Description

The Second Edition of Studying Leadership guides the reader through the cacophony of competing perspectives and models of leadership; now updated with expanded discussion of hot topics like followership, gender, ethics, authenticity and leadership and the arts, set against the backdrop of the global financial crisis. Conceived by Chris Grey as an antidote to conventional textbooks, each book in the `Very Short, Fairly Interesting and Reasonably Cheap' series takes a core area of the curriculum and turns it on its head by providing a critical and sophisticated overview of the key issues and debates in an informal, conversational and often humorous way. Suitable for students, researchers and practitioners studying leadership across all disciplines.
