Today a growing number of business schools, law schools, and continuing education programs in executive development and management training offer leadership classes. Despite the curricular recognition of this area, there is a shortage of strong college-level texts. Leadership, second edition-a completely up-to-date anthology of key writings by well-known contributors-meets the need for a textbook that encompasses the major theories in the field of leadership. Robert P. Vecchio has updated the second edition with eight new chapters. Aimed at upper-level undergraduate and graduate-level courses, Leadership continues to provide classic essays by the major figures in the field of leadership along with topical essays on current and emerging issues.
