subjects James MacGregor Burns writes about Leadership, Business History & Biography
James MacGregor Burns's profile James MacGregor Burns is a Pulitzer Prize-winning Presidential biographer and a pioneer in the study of leadership. Author of more than a dozen books, he has devoted his professional life to the study of leadership in American political life. He received his doctorate in political science from Harvard, attended the London School of Economics, and taught at Williams College. Burns was a Democratic nominee for the 1st Congressional District of Massachusetts in 1958 and also served as a delegate to four Democratic National Conventions. He is a former president of both the American Political Science Association and the International Society of Political Psychology. His theory on transformational leadership has been the basis of more than 400 doctoral dissertations. His most recent book, with Susan Dunn, is The Three Roosevelts: Patrician Leaders Who Transformed America (Grove Atlantic, 2001). Prior to that he published, with Georgia Sorenson, Dead Center: Clinton-Gore Leadership and the Perils of Moderation (Scribner, 1999). Burns won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award for his biographies, Roosevelt: The Lion and the Fox (1956) and Roosevelt: The Soldier of Freedom (1970). His book, Leadership, published in 1978, is still considered the seminal work in the field of leadership studies.
