"In this excellent book, Chin (Adelphi Univ.) and Trimble (Western Washington Univ.) argue that in light of the emergence of increasingly global and diverse societies, leadership theory must now include multiculturalism and leadership diversity. The authors cover an impressive amount of social science research on both leadership theory and diversity theory, including recommendations for developing leadership diversity in various contexts and organizations." -- R.
