Non-western Leadership Theories LO25382

Replying to LO25379 --


here are some references I've found useful:

Laozi's "Tao-Te Ching" (a new translation is out by Richard Lynn, and
interpreted by Wang Bi) and to a lesser extent, Sun Tzu's "The Art of
War" and Mao's "On Guerrilla Warfare" both translated by Samuel Griffith

also, the story of the Trung sister's leadership against the Chinese is a
powerful one in Vietnamese history. You can find that in a number of
texts about Vietnam.

I've often found the Gilgamesh epic an interesting perspective of
leadership. Also (although this may be more nearly "western") the story
of Mentor and Telemachus, in the Odyssey.
