Educational Leadership and Administration makes a real contribution in focusing scholars' attention of this key field on its relevant past and possible future. The selection of articles in this major work draws on regional knowledge from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Australia, and New Zealand to offer researchers and academics a global perspective of the leading theories and ideas within educational leadership and administration. Drawn from the broad perspectives of behaviorism, structuralism, critical theory, and postmodernism, these articles and chapters represent the intellectual turning points of thinking in Educational Leadership and Administration, within the last 30-40 years. These pieces are considered "groundbreaking" in that they became the foundation of further research or are considered "classic" pieces which represent a summation of critical work in similar work. As such, this is a must-have reference resource for any student in the field.
