Summary "Leadership is unquestionably important in politics and policy, but defining what leadership is, and determining how it is important systematically, is often difficult. The contributors to this volume examine whether the form and content of leadership in the U.S. varies across governmental units and structures, and whether empirical evidence for leadership is stronger in some areas than in others." -- Provided by publisher
