Finalist for the Academy of Management Best Book Award, 1992 "The Hunt book charts new waters in the study of leadership. . . . Achieves its purpose quite well. . . . Provides a highly impressive review of new developments in the study of leadership along with conceptual mechanisms for the integration of objectivist and subjectivist methodologies for the understanding of leadership in the context of large systems. . . . For the student of leadership, this book provides a stimulus for considering a subjectivist perspective for study as well as the traditional objectivist approach. . . . Another major innovation in Hunt's work is the contrasting of transactional leadership with transformational leadership. . . . It has much more to offer for those who deal with complex bureaucracies than more simple organizations. Yet, we must remember that this book is directed to the scholar of leadership. As a source of ideas for expanding our conceptions of leadership and for further research, I have seldom encountered its equal." --Administration in Social Work "Chapter 1 of the book delineates clearly the purpose, focus, and scope of the book as well as its structure and organization, thus providing an excellent preview of things to come. In developing the synthesis and formulating the comprehensive multiple-level leadership model, the book goes far beyond the traditional leadership literature and incorporates ideas and concepts from literature in a wide range of fields. . . . The book accomplishes . . . what it sets out to do extraordinarily well. The author has done a masterful job of bringing together a diverse and wide-ranging literature and has succeeded in placing leadership within a managerial and organizational context that encompasses the total system as well as important sub-systems. . . . The book represents a monumental piece of work that significantly extends the frontiers and boundaries of leadership. . . . The book is definitely 'must reading' for researchers and scholars who share an intellectual and serious interest in the subject of leadership. The expanded theoretical framework that the book provides is sure to have a significant impact on leadership research in the 1990s and beyond. As, and when, evidence begins to come in regarding the linkages among the various constituent parts of the models, it is likely to radically alter our ways of thinking, researching, and teaching about the elusive and complex phenomenon of leadership." --Contemporary Psychology "This is the book that I wish had been available when I took my graduate seminar in leadership and executive development. . . . Hunt has now provided a comprehensive framework for examining leadership. His synthesis brings together these perspectives among others in the presentation of a multiorganizational level leadership model. . . . Hunt uses several devices for orienting the reader. First, Hunt provides very effective introductions to each chapter. At the end of each chapter, the 'Concluding Commentary' reinforces key concepts and helps with the transition to the next component. In addition, a figure of the model is reprinted in each of the component chapters. This also assists in integrating the material. . . . [Leadership] is extremely important. . . . What Hunt has done with this book is challenge us to go beyond the short term. He has provided a model that can provide a framework for more effective research. He challenges both the 'objectivist' and 'subjectivist' to consider a rich approach. In doing so he has successfully integrated a diverse literature." --Journal of Management "Jerry Hunt maintains his position of world prominence in the study of leadership. This book takes the field in a new and exciting direction." --Robert E. Quinn, University of Michigan "Jerry Hunt negotiates a vast body of emerging literature on leadership with his characteristic facility and objectivity while gently nudging the reader toward a new synthesis. The good thing about Hunt's synthesis is that it is gentle and non-interventionistic. This is in refreshing contrast to most attempts at integration through imposition of a rigid structure or framework. "In a sense this book represents a long-overdue marriage between Leadership and Philosophy of Science. Hunt, the matchmaker, deserves praise." --Appa Rao Korukonda, Saint Bonaventure University, New York "This book is the first to provide a broad integration of theory and research on leadership. Hunt brings together the crucial paradigm-shift issues in leadership and places them in a coherent context. This is a landmark book that may well define leadership theory for the next decade." --Marshall Sashkin, Office of Educational Research and Improvement, U.S. Dept. of Education "An excellent compendium of very divergent views of leadership. Any scholar who reads the book will be impressed with the breadth of coverage. . . . Belongs on the bookshelf of any serious leadership scholar. This book provides a first step in clarifying the potential pieces of the (leadership) mosaic. As such, it was well worth the read." --Leadership Quarterly "The book is written in a lucid, highly readable style. The contents are organized with great skill and all the different parts dovetail well with one another through a cohesive theme. Throughout the book, the author has remained faithful to his original objective, which is to provide a synthesis of leadership concepts." --Vikalpa "Hunt deftly integrates organizational behavior, organizational theory, and strategic management research in his attempt to compare and contrast the findings and conclusions of mainstream leadership research. Of particular note are his analyses of "leadership domains" at different organizational levels, cognitive processes and related schemas, a broad array of leadership behavior typologies, transformational and visionary leadership (with a particularly interesting assessment of crisis and charisma), stakeholder management, and organizational culture. As a result, the book is much more than another treatise on leadership per se. . . . Hunt is to be commended for his attempt to draw from the organizational behavior, organizational theory, and strategic management literatures to prove the myriad mysteries and dilemmas associated with the leadership function." --Personnel Psychology ". . . The book offers frameworks, concepts, and insights of value in structuring our research on leadership and our thinking about leadership practice." --Hal G. Rainey, The University of Georgia, Journal of Public Administration: Research and Theory An expanded view of leadership is needed in today's fast-moving society. Although most studies on leadership have emphasized leadership at the bottom of the organization, many practitioners, consultants, and researchers have recognized that there are differing leadership requirements by organizational level. In this volume Hunt proposes a new leadership synthesis that provides an expanded view of leadership based on: a multiple organizational-level approach, and an emphasis on the differing leadership realities involved in the way we gain, use, and assess leadership knowledge in such a multiple-level approach. Hunt's extended multiple-level synthesis draws on a wide range of conceptual and empirical literature. It also emphasizes the importance of not only strategic-level leadership but indirect effects felt deep within the organization. A sophisticated new look at leadership, Leadership: A New Synthesis provides cutting edge material and extensive references for researchers, scholars, advanced graduate students, and relatively sophisticated practitioners.

A Pulitzer Prize–winning historian examines transformational leaders from Moses to Machiavelli to Martin Luther King Jr. in this “impressive book” (The Washington Post). Historian and political scientist James MacGregor Burns has spent much of his career documenting the use and misuse of power by leaders throughout history. In this groundbreaking study, Burns examines the qualities that make certain leaders—in America and elsewhere—succeed as transformative figures. Through insightful anecdotes and historical analysis, Burns scrutinizes the charisma, vision, and persuasive power of individuals able to imbue followers with a common sense of purpose, from the founding fathers to FDR, Gandhi to Napoleon. Since its original publication in 1970, Leadership has set the standard for scholarship in the field.

This illuminating study critiques the concept of leadership as understood in the last 75 years and looks to the twenty-first century for a reconstructed understanding of leadership in the postindustrial era. More similarities in past decades were found than had been thought; the thread throughout Rost's book is that leadership was conceived of as good management. He develops a new definition and paradigm for leadership in this volume that distinguishes leadership from management in fundamental ways. The ethics of leadership from a postindustrial perspective completes the paradigm. The book concludes with suggestions that can be immediately utilized in helping to transform our understanding of leadership.
