Publisher's Summary

In this rich and illuminating book, the Pulitzer Prize-winning, best-selling author Robert Coles creates a portrait of moral leadership - what it is, and how it is achieved - through stories of people who have led and inspired him: Robert Kennedy; Dorothy Day; Dietrich Bonhoeffer; Erik Erikson; a Boston bus driver; and teachers in college, medical school, and elementary school, among others.

Coles tells how to be a moral leader and shows how the intervention of one person can change the course of history, as well as influence the day-to-day quality of life in our homes, schools, communities, and nation. We need to "hand one another along" in life, says Coles, quoting his friend Walker Percy, and in Lives of Moral Leadership he explores how each of us can be engaged in a continual and mutual life-giving process of personal and national leadership development. Coles discusses how the actions of the American president affect the way people feel about themselves and the country, and-citing the influence of Shakespeare's Henry V on Robert Kennedy, and of Tolstoy's Anna Karenina on his own mother - explains how reading literature can motivate action and growth. The way in which moral leaders emerge today, and for all time, comes vividly to light in this brilliant book by one of America's finest teachers and writers.
