Book Description

29 Dec 2009 1412974887 978-1412974882 Fifth Edition
Now with new coverage of authentic leadership and servant leadership, the Fifth Edition of Peter Northouse's Leadership remains the market-leading survey text for leadership courses across disciplines.

The new edition combines an academically robust account of major theories, approaches, models, and themes of leadership with an accessible style and numerous practical exercises to allow students to apply what they learn about leadership both to themselves and to specific contexts and situations.

Features and Benefits:

- Breadth of theory coverage is substantial yet synthesized in such a way as to leave room for specific application and greater discussion of discipline or program-specific issues.

- Numerous, contemporary case studies supplement each major theory or topic to allow students to apply leadership concepts to specific scenarios.

- Leadership instruments and questionnaires provide effective reflection opportunities and often add a a significant and immediate reality check to the theory presented.

- The chapter on Women and Leadership is expanded to broader diversity issues.

- The enhanced Instructor's Resources CD offers more test items, new cases, and access to academic journal articles, organized by topic and/or discipline.

- A new accompanying Study Site featuring additional topics, exercises, projects, cases, chapter summaries, video clips, and social networking tools encourages active participation and learning among groups inside or outside the classroom.

Product Description

Review

User-friendly theory for students and teachers. Well-structured, clear, and crisp. (Bryan Ginter 2010-03-12)

"It is an excellent primer on the history and fundamental notions of leadership. I am particularly impressed with the presentation of many different types of leadership, the newest forms of leadership, and the case studies." (Derrick B. Barbee 2011-02-10)

"A 'must have' comprehensive presentation of leadership theories from historical to contemporary views. An invaluable resource for students and scholars." (Bonnie M. Beyer)

An affordable text with good coverage of leadership theory and concepts. (James Dittmar 2010-03-19)

Great baseline leadership theories from which to explore more recent research and context-specific discussions of theories. Good case studies for students to work through. (Beth Birmingham 2010-03-19)

Northhouse explains the various leadership theories in understandable bite-size concepts and provides examples to support the explanations. The students actually enjoy the lessons. The study of leadership can be a difficult concept to explain. By theorizing about observed phenomena, we can make predictions that can be tested in the real world as well as in more controlled settings. Northhouse provides this procedure. (Daniel Simone 2010-03-19)

I liked the summary of leadership theory it provides. It is very good overview that is easy to read and understand. There is nothing like this specifically related to higher education. (Linda Kuk 2010-03-19)

The Northouse text offers relevant material pertaining to leadership which can be utilized by any discipline. The case studies at the end of each chapter are priceless. (Patsy Cornelius 2010-03-19)

Great survey text of leadership theory, with leadership inventories connected to each theory presented. (Keith Fulthorp 2010-03-21)

The Northouse book presents a comprehensive view of leadership and the theories associated with leadership behavior. This is an outstanding text to use with a graduate-level leadership course. (Edward L. Bouie, Jr. 2010-03-25)

4.0 out of 5 stars Leadership: Theory and Practice 25 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback
Throughout my academic year, this book was the one that I read several times. Although, it really covers the basics and there are many more thories that are interesting and good to be included, it is systematically structured, easy to read and linked with practical excersises. I enjoyed it and used it as a basic reference to all my study work in Leadership. It provides large variety of other bibliography to extend your knowledge and look further into the subject.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good start 15 May 2010
Format:Paperback
This book is useful as a starting point if you've never studied Leadership before. It's quite basic but covers all of the main points on all of the main leadership subjects. A great place to start learning about a rather complicated subject area.

I realised the book was second hand, but did not expect pages to be missing and the majority of the book to be defaced. Would not recommend getting books from this seller.
