'This is a very good and much needed book. Written by a very experienced researcher and teacher in the education leadership world it brings together a wealth of understanding and insights in the field of leadership and management development in education' - International Journal of Educational Management

'[T]his book is an excellent survey of practice on a truly international scale which many will find valuable' - Educational Management Administration and Leadership

'Few people could be better qualified to write about this topic than Tony Bush. The book draws on a wealth of experience and detailed research. Typically, it is extremely well structured, written with great clarity, and combines the highest levels of scholarship with an accessible style that will enable it to appeal to a wide audience. This is a book that many in the field have been waiting for' - Professor Mark Brundrett, Professor of Educational Research, Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool

'This book is far and away the best international comparative study of leadership development for schools. There are countless books highlighting the importance of leadership but none have satisfactorily gone to the heart of the issue, especially for developed and developing countries, and Tony Bush has done it here. It is a sure guide to policymakers, practitioners and researchers who want to make a difference' - Professor Brian J. Caldwell, Managing Director of Educational Transformations and former Dean of Education at the University of Melbourne, Australia

Leadership is critical to educational development and specific preparation is vital if leaders are to maximise their effectiveness. In this major new text, Tony Bush draws on his extensive international experience and research to examine the case for leadership development and assess the different modes of preparation used in Europe, including the U.K., North America, Asia Pacific, Australia, New Zealand and Africa.

He also examines research on how leadership impacts on school and student outcomes and considers future directions for leadership and management development in education.

This text is essential reading for students of educational leadership and management as well as for policy-makers, headteachers and principals.
