Harvey’s Leadership Book Wins Award

November 01, 2012
Prof. Michael Harvey and Prof. Ronald E. Riggio (Claremont-McKenna College, Claremont, CA), editors of Leadership Studies: The Dialogue of Disciplines, were honored at the 2012 annual conference of the International Leadership Association.

The book, published by Edward Elgar, includes perspectives on leadership studies by leading scholars from a wide range of academic disciplines, including classic literature, philosophy, art, history, and the social sciences.

Riggio, provides an introductory chapter that frames the interdisciplinary challenges of leadeship studies, and Harvey provides a concluding chapter that presents an integrated, interdisciplinary model of leadership as action-oriented inquiry.

The edited collection was one of three books recognized at the conference, held in October in Denver. The book competition and recognition is administered by the University of San Diego’s School of Leadership and Education Sciences.

As one of the competition’s reviewers put it: “Harvey and Riggio have given us a book that reflects the true character of leadership. With scholarly chapters that honor the tradition of literature in the field, they have brought together a dialogue that offers a multidisciplinary perspective on how we can better understand leadership. What may be the true strength of this offering is how they manage to make the work both accessible and ambitious.  It is easily a book that will be well received by the informed practitioners as well as students of leadership at all levels.”
