This book not only integrates the growing body of research and theory on charismatic leadership, but also pushes back the frontiers of our knowledge by introducing new theories and insights. The authors present a comprehensive model of the charismatic leadership process. The model is documented by extensive empirical research and richly illustrated with case examples of corporate leaders.
