(6),vii-viii,1-224. 8vo, decorated blue card covers with tan and light blue lettering to front cover, tanlettering to spine. "Robert Campbell examines the inadequacies of current theories on leadership in order to help us better understand the process ofleadership and to suggest mechanisms for change. The proliferation of exam ples of poor political, religious, corporate and even grass roots leadership is troubling, to say the least. Perhaps more troubling is the resulting cynicism -- and apathy -- on the part of poulations who sorely desire, and deserve, better leadership and governance. There are many and varied sourcesof theories and practical advice on leadership but, as Campbell suggests, too many simply play into our need for quick fixes and novelty and do not reflect what is actually going on in the world. In 'Governance and Social Leadership', Campbell examines the dynamic nature of organizations and humanssystems and our capacity, or incapacity, to act." - from rear. Very good. 15.00
