*Call for Chapters*

*The Palgrave Handbook of Leadership in Transforming Asia*

*Palgrave Macmillan, UK*

*The Handbook*

The media consistently reports Asia as a rapidly growing region attracting
immense interest from the world. Under one cover, the ‘Handbook of
Leadership in Transforming Asia’ provides insights into topics not
published in other books. The content is drawn from a global offering of
the latest research into areas of transformations addressing leadership,
followers and organizations in the Asian context.

The handbook creates a comprehensive overview and evaluation of the variety
of the leadership issues that affect the relationship between leaders and
their followers, from the point of view of leaders themselves, their
followers and organizations. The handbook offers chapters that are based on
empirical studies with evidence-based findings that can be used as case
studies for academics and researchers. The book will assist researchers to
understand the complexity of leadership research and practices in
transformational economies such as Asia. In addition the content of the
book will assist international researchers and practitioners to understand
the Asian cultural impact of leadership practices.

It is expected that the handbook will make significant contributions to the
theory and practice of leadership by enhancing our understanding of
leadership effectiveness and its implications within the Asian environment.
The chapters will cover leadership issues across a wide range of contexts
and leader perspectives.  Examples include leadership in business,
political and religious contexts (e.g. spiritual leaders) in Asia. In this
way, the handbook will facilitate readers understanding of the diversity
and complexity of leadership in various Asian contexts.  The handbook will
consist of 30 chapters (1,000 pages) with approximately 20-25 pages/chapter.
