In 1976, leadership theorist and political scientist James McGregor Burns wrote that "Leadership is one of the most observed and least understood phenomenon on earth." While this still rings true today, social science researchers have since discovered much about how leadership processes function. This course introduces students to contemporary scholarship in the field of leadership studies and asks them to apply aspects of that research to cases studies in American history.
