Historically, the primary mission of higher education has been to prepare students to be effective leaders and informed citizens. Throughout the past 2 decades, colleges and universities have placed an increasing emphasis on programming related to leadership (Roberts, 1997). Student affairs administrators have designed academic courses, cocurricular programs, and experiential learning focused on the development of college student leadership. Parallel to this emphasis, there have been significant developments in the study of leadership. The shift has been from focusing on the characteristics of individual leaders (perspectives embedded in Western culture), to leadership as a group process involving change (Johnson, 1995). As a result, leadership educators find a plethora of literature that is cumbersome and difficult to synthesize for a course or program. Susan Komives, Nance Lucas, and Timothy McMahon provide educators with a contemporary, consolidated resource with their book, Exploring Leadership for College Students Who Want to Make a Difference. What makes this publication unique is that it is a textbook written specifically for college students to be used in a variety of contexts.
