Over the past four years most of the contributors to this volume have been engaged in dialogue with each other about leadership. James MacGregor Burns brought us together as a part of the Kellogg Leadership Studies Project (KLSP), of which he was the project scholar. The KLSP was funded by a W. K. Kellogg Foundation grant given to the Center for Political Leadership and Participation (recently renamed the James MacGregor Burns Academy of Leadership) at the University of Maryland, College Park. The essays by Gini, Solomon, and Wren and my essay "Leadership and the Problem of Bogus Empowerment" came out of the focus group on ethics and leadership, which I convened as a part of this project. They were first published in a set of working papers by the KLSP. Bass's article was also part of a KLSP focus group on transformational leadership. Many thanks to the Kellogg Foundation for its support of the KLSP and to Larraine R. Matusak, its Leadership Program officer. I also am grateful to Georgia J. Sorenson, the Director of the Center for Political Leadership and Participation; Bruce Adams, the KLSP Project Director; and Scott W. Webster, the Assistant KLSP Project Director; for making the conversations and working papers that led to this book possible.
