"Provides extensive empirical material and many insights on contemporary ‘leadership for development’ that should help both academics and practitioners get a better grasp on the all-too-obviously important elements of leadership at a time when this phenomenon has become ever more pivotal."—Norman Uphoff, Cornell University

"While there are many studies attempting to explain the successes and failures of developing countries in political and economic terms, there are relatively few that have looked at the role of leadership itself. This book of essays ... is a valuable contribution toward filling that gap."—Dwight H. Perkins, Harvard University

"Advanced thinking by leading experts on the application of both transactional leadership and transforming leadership to vital and demanding questions of global development. Highly recommended."—James MacGregor Burns, Williams College
