A series of essays

Books

Leadership For Nation Building

Read Description
John Adams, one of the founders of the American democratic experiment, said:

Suppose a nation in some distant region should take the Bible for their only law book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts contained! Every member would be obliged in conscience to temperance, frugality and industry; to justice, kindness and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love and reverence towards Almighty God”

This book examines the truth and argues for its application in the governing process.

Challenge to Govern as a Statesman

Read Description
How do you want to be remembered as a leader? As a Politician or a Statesman? Exploring the difference between a politician and a statesman, this book helps identify what people are looking for in a leader, and then, considers with those governing how to be such leaders, and as leaders to facilitate cooperation between governed and the governors. James Freeman Clarke said:

“A politician thinks of the next election, a statesman of the next generation. A politician looks for the success of his party; a statesman for that of his country. The statesman wishes to steer, while the politician is satisfied to drift.

James Freeman Clarke, “Wanted, a Statesman!”, Edward Everett Hale, editor, Old and New Magazine, Vol. 2, Dec. 1870, p. 644.
