Effective and inspiring leadership at all levels is increasingly recognised to be the key to positive social and political change. Leadership is thus one of the critical issues facing Africa, which is often seen only as a space of famine, conflicts, bad governance and failing statistics. This book of essays by 18 distinguished thinkers and leaders testifies to hope on the horizon for African societies. Journalist and film-maker Onyekachi Wambu harvests fresh insights into leadership cultures in different African contexts, identifying the weaknesses and the strengths that block or advance development. This book is essential reading in every society where the philosophy and practice of leadership are urgently debated.
