Statesmanship, Character and Leadership demonstrates how individual leaders acted at critical turning points in American history. Terry Newell's analysis defines statesmanship, distinguishes it from leadership, and places it at the forefront of politics. Using seven leaders as case studies, Newell examines how building a transcendent purpose, employing artful politics, and using compelling persuasion are central to achieving a good society. He places special emphasis on the importance of character. This fresh perspective on leadership offers techniques for today's leaders who are committed to moving beyond politics as usual.
