This work within The SAGE Reference Series on Leadership provides undergraduate students with an authoritative reference resource on political and civic leadership. This 2-volume set focuses on the 100 most important topics, issues, question, and debates specific to politics and civic society. Entries provide students with more detailed information and depth of discussion than typically found in an encyclopedia entry while avoiding much of the jargon, detail and density one might find in a journal article or a research handbook chapter.
