Leadership: Theory and Practice. Sixth Edition
Northouse, Peter G.
Sage Publications Ltd (CA)
Adopted at more than 1,000 colleges and universities worldwide, the market-leading text owes its success to the unique way in which it combines an academically robust account of the major theories and models of leadership with an accessible style and practical exercises that help students apply what they learn. Each chapter of Peter Northouse's "Leadership: Theory and Practice" follows a consistent format, allowing students to contrast the various theories, and three case studies in each chapter provide practical examples of each theory or trait discussed. The Sixth Edition adds an important new chapter on Servant Leadership. A list of references, author index, and subject index are included.
