Chapter 1 introduces the book’s rationale, which is that the field of contemporary leadership studies is comparable to that of sociology when C. Wright Mills wrote The Sociological Imagination (1959). Mills decried sociology’s increasing emphasis then on research topics and methods that lent themselves to easily quantified secondary analysis over primary research on complex and multidimensional issues. The author updates Mills’s critique and applies it to contemporary leadership studies, which is in the process of defining its identity and scholarly profile. Building on the author’s extensive career of teaching and chairing doctoral research on complex leadership dilemmas, the book argues for a method of leadership analysis that blends the social sciences and humanities traditions to provide contextually nuanced analysis of organizational black swans over abstract studies of positional leaders.
