The preface, by Kristin M.S. Bezio, begins with a definition of “culture” and an explanation of how culture—and, specifically, cultural works like literature, art and music—engages in leadership, both on its own and through those who create it.

Creating Business Models with New Forms of Innovation
Stephen Flowers, Martin Meyer and Jari Kuusisto
This is an introductory chapter that outlines the main context for the book – the shift in the ability of users and others to mobilise and coordinate the resources required in order to innovate. This book provides a detailed account of the way in which goods and services are produced and consumed at the new frontier of innovation. Each of the chapters explores a different aspect of this developing frontier and provide detailed case studies of the different forms the processes of creation and consumption are now taking. This is not an exercise in prediction, rather it holds up a mirror to what is happening around us and provides a new toolkit to help make sense of complex and confusing situations. The exciting, or disturbing, reality is that the real-world cases presented throughout the book provide illustrations of possible futures for firms, sectors and entire industries.

Two Centuries of Judicial Review on Trial
Leslie F. Goldstein
Summarizes the racially discriminatory policies and entrenchments of black slavery adopted by elected branches, both state and federal, from 1789 to Civil War. Analyzes all slave cases that Supreme Court handled from 1789–1835, and major Indian cases of that era. Concludes that the Court was less anti-slavery than was the (indirectly) electorally accountable Attorney General of the U.S. Also demonstrates that Marshall Court decisions became less pro-slavery beginning in 1817, the year the Colonization Society was founded. Supreme Court justices acting on circuit declared unconstitutional the South Carolina Negro Seamen law that jailed free blacks while they were in port, and refused to apply the Virginia law that did the same. Describes Indian Removal Policy, including Trail of Tears. Concludes that Marshall Court stood up for the rights of Native Americans, but the elected branches did more than the Court to restrict and punish slave traders.

The first chapter addresses Christopher Marlowe, whose influence over his own time was significant, as he was one of the first playwrights to develop the dramatic formula we have come to associate with the now more famous Shakespeare. In the years since his death in 1593, Marlowe has become an icon of early atheism and heresy, as well as resistance to an authoritarian government. In addition to his impact on the dramatic genre, Marlowe’s work, particularly Massacre at Paris, shows disdain for the violence that seemed to him endemic to the English Reformation, and suggests a nihilistic view of religion as detrimental to society.
A Conflict-Based Approach to Intellectual Rights
Niels van Dijk
Michael D. Mumford, Sven Hemlin and Tyler J. Mulhearn
In recent years, it has become apparent that the success and survival of firms depends on sustained innovation and the creative efforts of employees. Although many variables influence creativity and innovation, leadership has been found to be one of the most notable, and most powerful, influences on creativity and innovation. In this volume, the editors and contributors examine what is known about the effective leadership of creative efforts with respect to key functions performed by the leaders of creative efforts, the models used to explain the leadership of creative efforts, and the domains, areas, in which we see leadership of creative efforts. This chapter provides an overview of the nature and significance of the topic of this volume, the leadership of creative efforts, and the conclusions emerging from the various chapters included in this volume. Directions for future research are discussed.
