???This book offers a full coverage of contemporary notions of leadership, including traditional theories, salient models, and new domains. The chapters on women in leadership, culture, and team leadership are welcomed additions. The sophisticated but readable style and the inclusion of superb case material make this book a valuable resource for both entry-level and advance leadership courses.??? ???Linda L. Putnam, Texas A&M University ???The additions to the Fourth Edition are excellent, especially the new section on ???Culture and Leadership??? and the updated chapter on ???Women and Leadership.?????? ???Gill Robinson Hickman, University of Richmond ???The excellent work of Peter Northouse invites teachers to grow along with students in research-based knowledge of leadership theory and practice. Peter??'s book leads in and of itself!??? ???Taggart E. Smith, Purdue University ???Northouse skillfully presents both thorough and up-to-date theory on leadership in this Fourth Edition. The new leadership chapter addressing the topic of culture is especially informative for our increasingly global classroom discussions. His ability to provide great application-based cases helps this leadership theory come alive. Northouse continues to be a scholar, as well as a student, of current leadership knowledge.??? ???Mary F. Sully de Luque, Thunderbird, The Garvin School of International Management ???Northouse has given a gift to leadership professors and students by compiling this concise, insightful, critical, and user-friendly exploration of the somewhat bewildering and confusing literature on leadership theory.??? ???Robert E. (Bob) Colvin, Christopher NewportUniversity Heartened by the positive response to previous editions of Leadership: Theory and Practice, this Fourth Edition is written with the same objective to bridge the gap between the often simplistic popular approaches to leadership and the more abstract theoretical approaches. In addition to the new two color-layout, the Fourth Edition also: Examines the latest research on culture, the dimensions of culture, and how culture affects the leadership process in a new chapter titled ???Culture and Leadership???.Takes a closer look at styles of female and male leaders, the causes for the ???glass ceiling, ??? and how the glass ceiling is being broken in organizational settings in a newly written ???Women and Leadership??? chapter.Includes new real-world case studies, research references, new figures and tables, additional research-based applications, and expanded discussions of selected leadership topics.Provides an Instructors Resources CD with PowerPoint slides, a test bank, writing assignments, chapter reviews, and much more.
