Pops combines leadership and organizational theory with early twentieth-century history to model public leadership that is both monumentally effective and classically ethical. The book draws on the career of General George C. Marshall, including his character virtues and ethical practices in two world wars and his efforts to keep the peace and promote economic recovery following World War II.
