This collection, drawn from Public Administration Review and other ASPA-sponsored journals, is an ideal resource for any PA course involving Leadership and Public Management. Far more than a simple anthology, the book is organized around Van Wart's unique leadership assessment model, which provides a useful framework for understanding the vast subject of leadership. Each of the book's nine main sections begins with an introduction by the editors. The volume includes some of the most important readings on public leadership published over the last eight decades.
