IN THIS SUMMARY
As the U.S. Army faces new types of missions and adopts complex technologies, the issue of leadership is more important than ever. In Leadership: The Warrior’s Art, editor and author Christopher Kolenda has gathered nineteen essays which analyze leadership and offer frameworks for better organizational effectiveness. The contributing authors examine leadership using theory, history, and the experiences of seasoned military personnel. The goal of the book is to enhance the education of Army leaders. Readers benefit from a wide range of perspectives on leadership. A common theme that unifies the content is the fact that leaders cannot exist without followers. As a result, a leader’s authority and success lies with the perception of his subordinates.
