Elizabeth D. Samet brings to this anthology her profound experiences as a teacher and her belief in the vital role of the humanities in cultivating leaders. Here, Samet explores the connection between literature and leadership. She looks at whether leaders are born or whether they are made, and the roles that creativity and imagination play in developing strategic thinkers in business, law, politics, medicine and beyond. Incisive section introductions focus on the skills and qualities that distinguish the unforgettable leaders who come to life in the selections. Readers of Leadership will enjoy its sheer variety: Machiavelli and Milosz, Douglass and Didion are a sampling of the 102 writers and works included. At the same time, they will enter a thought-provoking conversation that is both ancient and crucially current.
