Presents more than one hundred stories and essays that highlight the relationship between literature and leadership and creativity and strategic thinking, featuring works from a variety of writers.
What is the connection between literature and leadership? Are leaders born or are they made? What roles can creativity and imagination play in developing strategic thinkers in business, law, politics, medicine, and beyond? Elizabeth D. Samet, a civilian professor at West Point--an institution whose mission is to develop "leaders of character"--brings to this anthology her profound experiences as a teacher of soldiers and her belief in the vital role of the humanities in cultivating leaders. In incisive section introductions, Samet focuses on the skills and qualities that distinguish the unforgettable leaders--be they heroic, quixotic, or villainous--who come to life in the selections. Readers of Leadership will enjoy its sheer variety--Machiavelli and Milosz, Douglass and Didion are just a sampling of the 102 writers and works included. At the same time, readers will enter a thought-provoking, often moving conversation about leadership that is both ancient and crucially current.
