Summary
  • "As Americans face seemingly intractable problems, they are tired of "business as usual" and "politics as usual." They are looking for statesmanship. In this book, Newell examines noted Americans at seven critical turning points in American history to look at what it takes to be a statesman. Through a powerful speech and the events preceding and following it, they show us how they grappled with conflicting values, varying demands, and the uncertainties of trying to forge a good society. This book is aimed at practicing leaders--and students of leadership"--Provided by publisher
  • "Americans hunger for statesmanship. They seek leaders who will respond to problems by putting the nation's long-term needs ahead of partisanship and personal gain. We have faced this need before, and leaders came forward with acts of statesmanship. We can learn from them. Statesmanship, Character and Leadership in America explores what seven leaders at turning points in American history said and did. Their character and ability to manage the context of their times, craft a transcendent purpose, practice artful politics, exercise compelling persuasion and call forth high moral values from the American people offer ideas and techniques for leaders today"--Provided by publisher
