Excerpt

This book is volume 6 of the Leadership Symposia Series originating in 1971. This series covers the content of biennial symposia held at the Carbondale campus of Southern Illinois University. This volume joins the earlier ones in charting the state of the field.

First, a mix of work from well-known scholars, widely recognized for many years, and younger scholars whose work has only recently received attention, has been utilized. Second, expert discussant/critiquers have prepared commentaries for the presentations. Third, interchange has been encouraged at the symposia and issues emerging from this interchange have been woven into the introductory part and chapter materials where appropriate. Fourth, an outstanding scholar has provided a broad-ranging overview to put the book contents into perspective.

Finally, in more recent volumes, the editors have provided a considerable amount of additional commentary to help balance the content of the volumes in terms of current thrusts.
