ART OF LEADERSHIP:

Item Description
KEY INSIGHTS OF INSPIRING LEADERS - by Robert Blackstock. Paperback, 120 pages. Blackstock summarizes the book in these words. "For the past twenty years I have taught a course at Hillsdale College on leadership. The course, Readings in Leadership, Power, and Responsibility, uses great works of literature and history to view and analyze leadership: Leadership big and small, good and evil, effective and poor. Students brought much to the experience including their intelligent, inquiring minds, humor, determination, kindness, and good will. In one sense, we have been a community of learners in which my wife, Jackie, and I have been privileged to labor for decades. Students had their roles and we had ours. Student and teacher: those were the boundaries within which we and they did our jobs. In another, richer, sense though, we have been friends with a shared, high, good, and noble purpose; friends of the sort that Aristotle describes in The Ethics as he plots the course for human happiness. Surely, these students have been a rich source of my happiness.In the pages of this little book we find some of the greatest leaders the world has seen and some of the worst. We'll examine the qualities that made them great and that made them fail. We'll examine the intellectual leadership of Plato and Aristotle, the unflinching but troubled leadership of Alexander the Great, the uplifting leadership of Christ, and the worrisome yet instructive teachings of Machiavelli. We'll see visionary rhetoric, monstrous hearts, blinding pride, unbridled passion, and inspiring discipline, courage, and service.For over forty years I have enjoyed the company of Hillsdale College students, faculty, and staff. Day in and day out, year after year, they have enriched the fabric of my life. The laughter, the tears, the trials and triumphs, all have been a joy. This book is a small token of my thanks to them for their friendship."

Image For BENJAMIN FRANKLIN,

BENJAMIN FRANKLIN,

Item Description
NATURAL RIGHT, AND THE ART OF VIRTUE - By Kevin Slack. Hardcover. 305 pages. Benjamin Franklin's writings on politics are voluminous, and his own politics are well known, yet scholars debate, whether he had a political philosophy and, if so, what it was. This book is a study of Franklin's political and philosophical writings, tracing the development of his political thought and elucidating the political philosophy he came to embrace and put into practice. Kevin Slack argues that Franklin, despite his reputation as a wit and clever politician, examined the nature of politics, virtue, and morality more deeply than any scholar has given him credit for. Franklin, as Slack demonstrates, rejected metaphysics during a period of youthful skepticism, adopting radical skepticism, but later abandoned that view for a third alternative, Shaftesbury's common-sense philosophy. Engaging in a rigorous critique of religious and political authorities, Franklin rejected all authoritative claims but that of reason, which he used to investigate the nature of justice, or natural right. Slack shows here that Franklin was a thinker in the tradition of Socrates, and thus a political philosopher in the truest and highest sense.
