This book approaches leadership from the standpoint of learning, and profiles exemplary leaders in the the area of social justice. The value of this book is the breakdown of learning skills, and the perspective of leadership as serving and empowering others. Also the profiles of various leaders related to specirfic skills, while somewhat contrived, is very helpful, as it showed social justice leadership in action. The co-author of this book is Stephen Brookfield, a renowned adult educator.

I feel like I am somehow critiquing social justice by only giving this book two stars. I'm not. But I didn't think this book was all that interesting. It felt more like a textbook disguised with an attractive cover than any sort of narrative approach to learning and leadership. I supposed there's nothing wrong with that, but I just didn't find this "illuminating" book all that illuminating.
Great book on leadership through a social justice lens. I enjoyed reading about leaders I have not previously been exposed to due to hegemony's stain. This was a quick read that still helped bolster my views on how best to practice leadership. Everyone intersted in leadership will be well served to read this book.
Good at highlighting overlooked leaders, mainly in the struggle for civil rights in the United States. I like its focus on collaborative leadership, a refreshing change from the status quo of hierarchical, androcentric, charismatic leadership literature.
Great teaching tool/primer for engaging students in the leadership points/styles and learning opportunities inherent in the social change movement.
