Reviews

“This book offers an account of some of the historical manifestations of positive leadership in Africa … . this book presents a collection of well-researched studies into political leadership in Africa which offers useful empirical insights into the prevailing atmospherics of governance that influenced the emergence of specific leadership styles in different contexts. The book is therefore essential reading for scholars concerned with political development, democratization and leadership in Africa.” (John Olushola Magbadelo, African Affairs, Vol. 117 (469), October, 2018)
