Radical Thoughts on Ethical Leadership, provides contributions from established scholars with fresh perspectives on ethical leadership, with challenging viewpoints that have been given little coverage in the literature to date. Radical Thoughts on Ethical Leadership includes theoretical perspectives that are founded on unconventional approaches—radical, “outside the box” ideas that would be difficult to get through the conventional journal review process.

The volume brings together noted researchers from a variety of disciplines and explore non‐mainstream approaches to ethics and social responsibility theory, research, and practice in both business and public administration. Grounded in the established literature and providing insight for researchers, managers/ administrators, or organizations at large, the volume establishes new paradigms for the field of ethical leadership.

"It is easy to recommend a book that takes a broad palette to a topic like ethical leadership and accomplishes the project effectively. This is a subject that has become increasingly important in recent years, where leadership has sometimes been most conspicuous in its absence. ... standout material by Waddock, Webb, Farazmand, and the editors themselves ensures the usefulness of this collection. This is a worthy contribution to the literature and is certain to spark discussion and new work in an exciting area of study." Christopher L.
