What is included with this book?


Taking an interdisciplinary approach to the topic of leadership, the third edition of this popular text examines the elements of military leadership from the perspective of contributors in the fields of history, business, religion, politics, and education. The third edition addresses significant changes in the armed forces and the "new realities" in leadership training, including gays in the military, ethics and values, and transformational leadership. This new edition incorporates the best new readings while retaining the classic readings on leadership from the first and second editions. Taken together, the chapters in this book stimulate the reader to understand the challenges and opportunities for effective leadership and followership in the context of military history, values, and culture.
