'School leaders and teachers know a lot more than they think they do. So, what prevents the release of that creative energy? Look, no further than this thought provoking collection of essays from world leading scholars. It treats us to a kaleidoscopic view of what we do know, what we ought to know and what we urgently need to do to harness the power of sustainable leadership. Policy makers, please take careful note!'-John MacBeath, Professor Education Leadership, University of Cambridge

'Offers a clarity to complex problems that enables both the academic and general reader to identify with the issues dealt with...the book is an enjoyable insight into several leaders' view on leadership, which Brent Davies has pulled together well and which will be of use to headteachers, aspiring leaders and academics alike' - International Journal of Educational Management

This is a useful text. What is particularly attractive is that it takes generic management theories/practice and applies this to an educational context.
