Pulitzer Prize-winning historian James MacGregor Burns devoted his legendary career to the study of leadership in all its aspects—from politics to business.

Featuring fascinating case studies drawn from history, Leadership is the classic text for anyone seeking to understand executive decision-making, the dynamics of influence, and moral leadership.
