About the Book
This revised edition provides basic theoretical approaches of social leadership research. It includes attributional and psychodynamic approaches, charismatic leadership theories, and theoretical concepts that define leader-member relations in terms of exchange relations, as well as leadership under symbolic and psychosocial perspectives, in the light of role theory and as a process of social learning. These approaches conceive leadership as an interactive and complex social process. They stress the significance of the individual perception for developing and forming leadership relations. Leadership is understood as the product of complex social relationships embedded in the logic and dynamic of the social system.
