165 CAMPBELL, Robert A. Governance and Social Leadership. Paperback.
Cape Breton University Press, Sydney, 2014, ISBN:9781897009703 
CAMPBELL, Robert A. Governance and Social Leadership. Sydney: Cape Breton University Press, (2014). First printing. Pp. (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

Pp (2),[i]-vii,(1),1-194. 8vo, decorated green and white card covers. "The unique beauty and richness of Islam’s sacred book calls out for it to be read and enjoyed by all. To be open to following the structural logic of the Qur’an, Western expectations about the use of narrative, description and dialogue should be set aside. Robert Campbell provides this introductory guide to help readers experience the Qur’an on its own terms. Following his guidance, in conjunction with reading an English language version of the Qur’an, can reveal a great deal about the nature of Islam and about how the Qur’an compares with other Abrahamic scriptures." - from the back cover.
