Quantum Leadership: Advancing Innovation, Transforming Health Care, Fourth Edition is a revised edition of a best-selling graduate level leadership textbook. The text is based on current concepts of leadership, data, and research related to the complexities of leadership.The Fourth edition has been revised to include new elements and ideas around leadership concepts to educate students as well as serve as an outstanding source of reference.

The addition of case studies found within each chapter help in the translational work. New application exercises will be made available via "The Quantum Workbook" as a supplement for learning.

Additional updates to the text include: chapter podcasts, additional translational and learning material related to chapter case studies. Lastly, all references have been revised and updated to reflect the most current evidence around learning leadership.

  • The New South Creed

    NewSouth Books. 2012. ISBN: 9781603061445,1603061444.

    First published in 1970, The New South Creed has lost none of its usefulness to anyone examining the dream of a new South -- prosperous, powerful, racially harmonious -- that developed in the three decades after the Civil War, and the transformation of that dream into widely accepted myths, shielding and perpetuating a conservative, racist society. Many young moderates of the period created a philosophy designed to enrich the region -- attempting to both restore the power and prestige and to lay the race question to rest. In spite of these men and their efforts, their dream of a "New South" joined the Antebellum illusion as a genuine social myth, with a controlling power over the way in which their followers, in both North and South, perceived reality.
