The author applies the models to a range of international contexts, including both developed and developing countries. This relates to global interest in concepts of leadership and management and to an increasing recognition of the need to customize theory and practice to each context and culture rather than adopting a `one size fits all' approach.
For the Fourth Edition, the essential conceptual models remain. New case study material has been added from the full range of education and non-school settings, from early years through to further and higher education. Each chapter now includes key words, summary and end of chapter materials including issues for discussion. Key terms are defined in-text for the non-expert reader and all references and relevant key legislation details have been fully updated.
This book is essential reading for all teachers who aspire to management, as well as for experienced leaders on Masters' level courses, and for those studying school management as part of education studies degrees.

'At a time when education is about instrumental delivery and can do
enthusiasm for reforms, it is heartening to see that a book about
theory and theorising is in its fourth edition. Tony Bush's focus on
helping the field to describe and understand practice is helpful and
crucial for professional learning and development' -
