Summary
Pulitzer Prize-winning historian James MacGregor Burns's definitive look at the power of transformational leadership, from Moses to Machiavelli to Martin Luther King Jr. Historian and political scientist James MacGregor Burns has spent much of his career documenting the use and misuse of power by leaders throughout history.

Since its original publication in 1970, Leadership has set the standard for scholarship in the field
