Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1993, Vol 38(12), 1292–1293. Reviews the book, Leadership Theory and Research: Perspectives and Directions edited by Martin M. Chemers and Roya Ayman (see record 1992-98503-000). Teamwork, ethical accountability, empowerment, gender and cultural diversity, responses under stress, the need for follower commitment and enhanced organizational performance, decision making without full information–Chemers and Ayman's book is nothing if not a timely compendium of issues in the field of leadership. One of the major themes of the book is the importance of considering diversity in current and future leadership study. The ideas presented in this book are timely and provocative. Cognitive, affective, and behavioral domains of leadership are all explored, although not necessarily in tandem. The book should be a valuable resource for those already familiar with the major historical perspectives and research in the field of leadership and for those who wish to extend their knowledge into current and future arenas.
