Leadership in Public Organizations : An Introduction
This is the first concise yet comprehensive treatment of public sector leadership for upper division and graduate students. In addition to the most up-to-date review of leadership theories in the field, "Leadership in Public Organizations" covers the major competency clusters in detail, and provides both the research on each competency and practical guidelines for improvement. These competencies are graphically portrayed in a Leadership Action cycle that aids students in visually connecting theory and practice. Other important features of the text include discussion questions and scenarios at the end of each chapter, numerous exhibits, and an easily reproducible leadership assessment instrument.

Table of contents
This innovative work provides an introduction to economic development in both an historical and contemporary, comparative, and systems framework. The volume takes a regional approach, with the theory developed within regional contexts. This leads to the second innovative aspect, an emphasis on institutional structures unique to each region. Third, the authors analyze the development process within the historical context of each region, and consider institutional inheritance from both the pre-colonial and colonial eras and in contemporary times.
