EDITORS This introduction to the International Handbook of Educational Lead- ership and Administration describes some of the motivation for devel- oping the book and several assumptions on which is based much of the work represented in its 31 chapters. A synopsis of the contents of those chapters is also provided. SOME KEY ASSUMPTIONS It is sometimes suggested that the search for an adequate understanding of leadership is doomed to fail. After all, there is little evidence of agreement about the concept in spite of prodigious efforts dating back hundreds if not thousands of years. Such a view is captured, for exam- ple, in Bennis' observation that: Of all the hazy and confounding areas in social psychology, leadership theory undoubtedly contends for top nomination. Probably more has been written and less is known about lead- ership than any other topic in the behavioural sciences. (1959, page 259) We do not find this state of affairs discouraging (nor entirely accurate) and, of course, it did not prevent Bennis from proceeding either. One reason for our desire to continue in the face of such discouraging words is that a great deal of leadership research aspires to develop a general theory, a theory which applies to all or most domains of organized human activity. This aspiration inevitably produces decontextualized and, therefore, abstract categories of practice. Howard Gardner's (1995) depiction of leadership as story telling is a case in point.

Details of the book
International Handbook of Educational Leadership and Administration

The International Handbook of Educational Leadership and Administration offers a comprehensive account of contemporary research and theory on educational leadership from a broadly international perspective. The 31 chapters included in the book address five basic themes: the context for leadership and administration; leadership development processes; cognitive perspectives in educational leadership; conceptions of leadership and administrative practice; and critical perspectives on educational administration. This is the only English-language review of leadership and administration theory and research that is extensive in scope and reflective of educational leadership issues in the developed, English-speaking world. The depth of treatment provided by the book makes it an essential reference for scholars in the field as well as serious leadership practitioners wishing to stay abreast of the state-of-the-art of knowledge concerning their work.
