`At the very time when leadership is recognized as the key to sustainable reform, [this book] is right on the mark. This is a comprehensive, powerful treatment of all core elements of new leadership from the ethical to the political, from the emotional to the entrepreneurial. A must-have compendium for those grappling with the present and future of school leadership'
Michael Fullan, Professor Emeritus, OISE/University of Toronto; and Special Adviser on Education to the Premier of Ontario
`The jewels in the book are the opening and closing chapters by Brent and Barbara Davies on "strategic" leadership, and by Andy Hargreaves on "sustainability" leadership. The book is worth buying for those alone, and for Geoff Southworth's reflective, practical piece on "learning-centred" leadership. This is one for the staffroom library'
Tim Brighouse recently Chief Adviser for London Schools and formerly Chief Education Officer for Birmingham
