Are leaders morally special? Is there something ethically distinctive about the relationship between leaders and followers? Should leaders do whatever it takes to achieve group goals? Leadership Ethics uses moral theory, as well as empirical research in psychology, to evaluate the reasons everyday leaders give to justify breaking the rules. Written for people without a background in philosophy, it introduces readers to the moral theories that are relevant to leadership ethics: relativism, amoralism, egoism, virtue ethics, social contract theory, situation ethics, communitarianism, and cosmopolitan theories such as utilitarianism and transformational leadership. Unlike many introductory texts, the book does more than simply acquaint readers with different approaches to leadership ethics. It defends the Kantian view that everyday leaders are not justified in breaking the moral rules.

Terry L. Price is Associate Professor of Leadership Studies at the Jepson School of Leadership Studies, University of Richmond. He has contributed to American Philosophical Quarterly, The Encyclopedia of Leadership, and The Journal of Political Philosophy, and is editor, with J. Thomas Wren and Douglas A. Hicks, of the three-volume reference set The International Library of Leadership.
