Coping with unscheduled events: the challenges of crisis leadership

A. Boin, Allan McConnell, P. Hart, R.A. Couto (Editor)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This work within The SAGE Reference Series on Leadership will provide undergraduate students with an authoritative reference resource on political and civic leadership. To avoid content overlap with other works in the series, this 2-volume set will be centered on the 100 most important topics, issues, question, and debates specific to politics and civic society. By focusing on 100 key topics, we hope to provide students with more detailed information and depth of discussion than typically found in an encyclopedia entry but not as much jargon, detail or density as a journal article or a research handbook chapter.
