The Handbook focuses on global scholarship on educational leadership preparation and development at the primary and secondary education levels. This includes empirical studies, conceptual analyses, and critical interpretations of trends, challenges, and opportunities across the globe in the field of educational leadership development. The purpose is to provide an extensive review of the state of the art of leadership development in the primary and secondary educational contexts drawing on the work of leading scholars. The Handbook provides both a critical description of the current debates and issues in this area and an assessment of where the discipline of leadership development is headed.

An international perspective is highly informative to the field given the global awareness of the importance of leadership in education and the increasing globalization of education in which borrowing of leadership development strategies and perspectives across national and regional borders is occurring. The handbook includes authors from a variety of national, cultural, and ideological perspectives to describe these issues and trends in educational leadership development. The collaboration of three major international professional associations facilitated extensive perspectives.
