‘t Hart and Tummers’ sophisticated view of public leadership emphasizes the relevance of leaders, relationships, institutional arrangements, contexts and contingencies. Using captivating practical stories as examples, the book unravels how these factors work together to understand both what produces good leadership and what impact leadership has in public life. The authors successfully achieve their goal of conveying ‘what we know of (political, administrative and civic) leadership’ in the very unique and messy world of public and collective problem-solving. – Sonia M. Ospina, Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, New York University, USA
This gem is essential reading for all who teach or research leadership and indeed for leaders in any field seeking an insight in their role. It is strong on dispelling popular myths, but provides very useable alternative frameworks. – Allan Fels, Australia and New Zealand School of Government
