Research into the psychology of leadership has been gathering momentum in recent decades, as scholars from a variety of academic fields increasingly recognise the value of understanding the inner workings of leadership, influence and power. This 5-volume major work brings together classic and recent papers which examine the topic from all angles and through the lenses of different disciplines. Each volume is introduced by an introductory chapter written by acclaimed editors S. Alexander Haslam and Stephen Reicher, which contextualise and provide the rationale behind the selection of papers. Volume 1: Leadership as Individuality: Attributes and Actions Volume 2: Leadership as Person-Situation Fit: Context and Contingency Volume 3: Leadership as Followership: Expectations and Exchange Volume 4: Leadership as Myth: Politics and Prejudice Volume 5: Leadership as Group Process: Identity and Influence

About Author

S. Alexander Haslam is a professor in the School of Psychology at the University of Queensland, Australia. In May 2017, Alexander was awarded the British Psychological Society's Presidents' Award. Interview: Alex Haslam on Teams and Trump Broadly my research addresses the issues of group behaviour and the individual-social relationship. More specifically, my recent research can be grouped into three areas. The first is an attempt to develop a model of crowd action that accounts for both social determination and social change. The second concerns the construction of social categories through language and action. The third concerns political rhetoric and mass mobilisation - especially around the issue of national identity. Currently, I am starting work on a Leverhulme funded project (jointly with Nick Hopkins of Lancaster University) looking at the impact of devolution on Scottish identity and social action in Scotland.
