Originally published in 1984. The argument of this book is that the preceding 12 to 15 years saw significant changes in educationalists’ understanding and application of the concepts of leadership, and because of these changes two things happened. One, the relationship between participants changed; and two, policy and practice also changed. The papers in this collection have been specially commissioned or collected together with this thesis in mind. Each of them examines leadership with special reference to one or more aspects, sectors, roles or interests within the educational system of England and Wales.
