Theory and Practice
- Peter G. Northouse - Western Michigan University, USA
The market-leading Leadership: Theory and Practice by Peter G. Northouse presents an academically robust account of the major theories and models of leadership with a focus on how theory can inform practice. Northouse uses a consistent structure for each chapter that allows readers to easily compare and contrast different theories. Case studies and questionnaires provide students with practical examples and opportunities to deepen their understanding of their own leadership style. The fully updated Ninth Edition features a new chapter on inclusive leadership, 17 new real-world cases that profile leaders from across the globe, a new discussion on leadership and morality, and examples of timely issues such as leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Used Previous Edition, good material
It is an excellent book, well structured and sustained, a lot of references.
The content is very clear and updated.
It could have more real life examples and cases.
This book is a classic and your support materials are excellent.
I love everything about this book. We use it every year in our Intro to Ed Leadership course with our new doctoral students. The students always comment that they enjoy reading the book and feel that the information is relevant to their work as practitioners. The updated version with new case studies, assessments, and online options is excellent.
This remains the required text for the Models of Leadership course in our Master's program. It covers almost all of the required objectives in a comprehensive manner and is well supported by the case studies that accompany it.
Excellent book. Concise but complete!
