Why George Washington?

(p.1) Introduction
George Washington and the Art of Business

Mark Mc Neilly

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter explains the reasons for writing a book about George Washington in relation to business leadership. It explains that though Washington was primarily a general and a politician, not a business leader, his accomplishments put him in a class that few other leaders in history can match. This book discusses the foundation of Washington's leadership principles and explores his success in organizing a revolution and securing liberty through a strong alliance.

Keywords:   George Washington, business leadership, politicians, revolution, liberty
