Editing this volume has been a journey where the endeavor to help others learn overlays considerable learning of our own. As we have discovered, the term ‘international handbook’ can be interpreted in very many different ways. Some focus on the word international, and assume that the volume will include reference to most, or even all, parts of the world. No doubt there will be those who skim the table of contents and note that there is no chapter related to their corner of the globe. We were aware at the commencement of the project that such global inclusiveness is not possible. We are now even more certain, having received the contributions of authors which evidence the extensive, expansive and rich variation of leadership and its development, even within each nation state, let alone across the world. A handbook is not an encyclopedia, and ‘in-ternational’ has always signified to us a state of mind, not a travelogue.
