Two Volume Set

This title, within The SAGE Reference Series on Leadership will provide undergraduate students and academics with an authoritative reference resource on political and civic leadership. This two-volume set will be centred on the 100 most important topics, issues, questions and debates specific to politics and civic society.

personalities and environments of political leaders

governance and allegiance roles

citizen activists and civic engagement

political campaigning

urban politics and leadership

public management

ethics in politics

policy development and implementation

executive management of public opinion

political speechmaking and the "bully pulpit"
