Product Description: Heartened by the positive response to the previous editions of Leadership: Theory and Practice, this Fourth Edition is written with the same objective; to bridge the gap between the often simplistic popular approaches to leadership and the more abstract theoretical approaches. As in previous editions, this new edition reviews and analyzes a selected number of leadership theories, giving special attention to how each theoretical approach may be applied to real-world situations. In essence, the purpose of Leadership: Theory and Practice is to explore how leadership theory can inform and direct the way leadership is practiced. While this edition retains many special features from previous editions, it is now in two color and has been expanded to include more leadership topics, research findings, questionnaires, case studies, and everyday applications.

It should be required reading for every leadership program.' -- Dr.Thomas E. Matthews, Director, Leadership Education, Development &BAD:amp; Training, SUNY Geneseo 'The third edition of Leadership by Northouse provides students with a powerful introduction to the strengths and limits of the social science strand of research in leadership. It provides application for undergraduates while for graduate students, it provides the context needed to plunge into reading research and developing research questions. At the same time, the book raises significant questions about the link between leadership and ethics and values.' --Roger Smitter, Ph.D., Director, Leadership, Ethics and Values Program, North Central College'Peter Northouse has produced a leadership textbook that is accessible to students, but solidly grounded in theory and research. He avoids the #65533;trap#65533; of making leadership appear too easy or trite, keeping his book serious and scholarly, but still interesting and enjoyable to read. I would feel confident that a student assigned Leadership: Theory and Practice is getting a sound introduction to the field.'--Ronald E. Riggio, Ph.D., Kravis Leadership Institute, Claremont McKenna College'I have used Leadership: Theory and Practice for the past four years as the primary text for an undergraduate leadership course that I teach. The comprehensive nature of the chapters, critiques, exercises, self-assessment instruments, and case studies make it very user-friendly for students and faculty.'-- Lynn Hertrick Leavitt, Director, Center for Service and Leadership, George Mason University'In his Third Edition, Northouse continues to update and enhance his leadership book. As a textbook for college students, the author provides an outstanding bridge between the research developments and the practical uses for leadership theory. His case study examples are contemporary, intriguing, and enticing to students and teachers who seek enhancement to their study of leadership.' --Christine D. Townsend, Professor, Leadership Education, Texas A&BAD:amp;M University

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
