In Leadership, Diversity, and Social Justice: Culture as a System for Resistance and Emancipation, Antonio Jiménez-Luque thoroughly explores the influence cultural diversity has on conceptualizations and practices of leadership. His text offers new insights on relational and holistic leadership perspectives that go beyond the Euro-American canon and promote greater levels of understanding, participatory processes, and equity.

The text examines the challenges of oppression and resistance through a well-crafted case study of leadership in a Native American Indian urban community. The study focuses on the process of collective emancipation and decolonization within a context of coloniality. It sheds light on processes of social change leadership and provides readers with a developmental model of culture change for organizations that can be applied in other contexts. The model consists of four stages beginning with a context of Eurocentric leadership and progressing through a deconstruction and reconstruction phase of worldmaking that combines framing and action to ultimately present a new decolonial approach.

Rich with scholarly arguments and case study findings, Leadership, Diversity, and Social Justice is ideal for courses and programs in critical leadership studies, as well as community organizations and institutions that foster a greater understanding among cultures and commitment with social justice.

The book is part of the Cognella Series on Advances in Culture, Race, and Ethnicity. The series, co-sponsored by Division 45 of the American Psychological Association, addresses critical and emerging issues within culture, race, and ethnic studies, as well as specific topics among key ethnocultural groups.

Antonio Jiménez-Luque holds a Ph.D. in leadership studies from Gonzaga University. He is an assistant professor in the School of Leadership and Education Sciences at the University of San Diego. Dr. Jiménez-Luque’s work explores how cultural, social, and historical perspectives influence conceptualizations and practices of leadership understood as a relational process of mobilization, emancipation, and social change.
