'The book ends with five propositions to help map future directions in cross-cultural research into educational leadership and management. They are pertinent in a theoretical and also in a practical sense and should be borne in mind by leaders and policymakers in their consideration of strategies for school improvement' - Ken Jones, Swansea Institute of Higher Education, writing in the Journal of In-service Education 'The authors offer a rigorous and systematic analysis based on careful definition, illustration and discussion which demonstrates the importance of understanding culture, leadership and their interaction in different contexts: in doing so they provide a powerful antidote to the simplistic export of ideas and lay foundations for a more sophisticated conceptual framework for the study of educational leadership' - John West-Burnham, International Leadership Centre, University of Hull
