Handbook of Heroism and Heroic Leadership, Paperback / softback Book


Over the past decade, research and theory on heroism and heroic leadership has greatly expanded, providing new insights on heroic behavior.

The Handbook of Heroism and Heroic Leadership brings together new scholarship in this burgeoning field to build an important foundation for further multidisciplinary developments.

In its three parts, "Origins of Heroism," "Types of Heroism," and "Processes of Heroism," distinguished social scientists and researchers explore topics such as morality, resilience, courage, empathy, meaning, altruism, spirituality, and transformation.

This handbook provides a much-needed consolidation and synthesis for heroism and heroic leadership scholars and graduate students.
