Howard Gardner, one of the worlds most accomplished psychologists, identifies the features, trends and paradoxes that characterize leadership today. While there have been many previous studies of leadership, Howard Gardners is the first to concentrate on the crucial component of leadership - the human mind. In illuminating portraits of a wide range of leaders - including J.Robert Oppenheimer, Martin Luther King, Margaret Thatcher, Pope John XXIII, Eleanor Roosevelt and Mahatma Gandhi - he exlpores the complex, dynamic relationship between the mind of the leader and that of his or her followers.
