Leadership and the Unmasking of Authenticity

The Philosophy of Self-Knowledge and Deception

Edited by Brent E. Cusher and Mark A. Menaldo

Leadership and the Unmasking of Authenticity presents a philosophic treatment of the core concept of authentic leadership theory, with a view toward illuminating how authors in the history of philosophy have understood authenticity as an ideal for humanity. Such an approach requires a broader view of the historical origins of authenticity and the examination of related ideas such as self-knowledge and deception. The chapters of this book illuminate the conflict between the contemporary understanding of authenticity and traditional philosophy by revisiting the ideas of thinkers who express self-knowledge as a cornerstone of their philosophy.

Leadership and Sexuality

Power, Principles and Processes

Edited by James K. Beggan and Scott T. Allison

Although both leadership and sexuality are important and heavily researched topics, there is little work that addresses the interaction of the two areas. Leadership and Sexuality: Power, Principles, and Processes is a scholarly synthesis of leadership principles with issues related to sexuality and sexual policy-making. The authors’ multi-disciplinary analysis of the topic examines sexuality in the context of many different kinds of leadership, exploring both the good and the bad aspects of leadership and sexuality.

Susan J. Erenrich

This chapter revisits the Mississippi Freedom Summer Project of 1964 through the eyes of the women singer-songwriters who went to the Black Belt. It highlights the gains and losses, the music, the alternative education programs, the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party and the voter registration drive. Erenrich examines leadership without followership as it relates to the Freedom Summer Project and encourages readers to reflect upon the benefits and drawbacks of popular education methodological practice. Fifty years later, this chapter celebrates, ruminates on and engages in discourse about one of the most momentous initiatives ever launched in the United States and the part played by women troubadours during that hot Mississippi Summer of 1964.

Educators face the difficult task of creating secure educational spaces in which to discuss traumatic events. This chapter seeks to outline how educators can use video games, comics and cosplay to teach about the horrors, politics and economics of historical warfare and misogyny, while staying true to educational principles and acknowledging the very real cost these events may have had on our students. Using these popular culture icons in conjunction with historical primary sources provide opportunities for students to safely visualize themselves in dangerous situations, to distance themselves from the trauma while sympathetically experiencing it. When students see themselves reflected in their studies, it expands their perceptions and opens their minds to plights of others.

Nicholas O. Warner

This chapter comparatively analyzes the films Twelve O’Clock High and Glory, which rank among cinema’s most interesting and compelling treatments of leadership. Both films had a significant impact on public awareness of certain facets of combat experience and military history. Warner blends leadership theory with analysis of cinematic factors, such as dialogue, storyline, characterization, cinematography, mise en scène and sound, to demonstrate the ways that such elements combine to create powerful, thought-provoking and nuanced portrayals of leadership (and of leader-follower relations) in the context of war.

Mark A. Menaldo

This chapter focuses on the moral and psychological consequences of destructive leadership through a literary examination of Peruvian Nobel laureate Mario Vargas Llosa’s epic political thriller, The Feast of the Goat (2000). Vargas Llosa uses realism to bring to life the complex psychological portrait of the Caribbean despot Rafael Leonidas Trujillo. Trujillo, who fits the stereotypical Latin American leader, embraces machismo as the source of his political power, and, as a result, his character shows no consideration for ethical and political principles. Trujillo’s will to power enervates the wills of his followers and denies the entire country its freedom, resulting in the destruction of the community’s moral imagination.
