Leadership


Leadership has been described as the “process of social influence in which one person can enlist the aid and support of others in the accomplishment of a common task”. Definitions more inclusive of followers have also emerged. Alan Keith of Genentech states that, 'Leadership is ultimately about creating a way for people to contribute to making something extraordinary happen.' According to Ken 'SKC' Ogbonnia, 'effective leadership is the ability to successfully integrate and maximize available resources within the internal and external environment for the attainment of organizational or societal goals.'

A hundred years ago an eminent European pathologist, Rudolf Virchow, said that once the interests of the privileged ceased to dictate the pattern of public health, the protagonists of health would become honoured statesmen, pillars of society; and he added that this could be achieved through political struggle. A century later, an eminent African pathologist, Dr Comlan A.A. Quenum, entered upon a strenuous political struggle for the health of the African peoples, and in ...

The Member States of WHO are already committed to work towards this objective, each in its own way and each taking account of its own health situation, health services, and economic and social background. For those inclined to dismiss this as a hollow slogan, one need only look at the revolutionary impact that other idealistic statements have had; the American Revolution was predicated on the assertion that all men are created equal, the French Revolution on libertt, tga...

History of the Hawaiian Kingdom Vol. 3

By: Ralph S. Kuykendall

This third volume of the definitive history of the Hawaiian Kingdom completes the project launched over forty years ago by the Historical Commission of the Territory of Hawaii and taken over in 1932 by the Department of History of the University of Hawaii. As originally planned by Professor Ralph Simpson Kuykendall, the first six chapters of this book were to be included in the second volume of the series, but it was decided that earlier publication of that volume was p...

In his history of the last years of the Hawaiian monarchy (1874–1893), Professor Kuykendall shows clearly the effects of the Reciprocity Treaty of 1875 with the United States, tying Hawaii so closely to its nearest neighbor, economically, that annexation became inevitable. Immigration problems, from the labor supply for the plantations to the repeopling of the Kingdom, are given an impartial and well-balanced treatment. And in handling the account of the apparently ine...

I can hardly count how often I have heard honest people declare, in all good faith, that the idea of health for all by the year zooo is not as revolutionary as we pretend. Some of them refer to Article I of the WHO Constitution, which mentions as its sole objective the attainment by all peoples of the highest possible level of health, to justify ironic comments on those who think the ideal of health for all by the year 2000 is revolutionary. According to them, that is a ...

The Shadow of a Prince in History

By: Aurel Danescu

Even if he is a very popular character, still not many people know his original history! Nowadays there are so much exaggerated stories and wrong information about him, that it is often confusion in “who was he really?”. This happens because there are rarely references to his real life and historical facts as they truly happened! Or worse, they are often distorted! Who is about? It is about the ruler of Walachia for three times between 1448 and 1476, Prince Vlad Dracula ...

The subject of “Dracula” is one of the most fascinating and interesting in the world being always presented as a fictional character that during the day lives a normal life, while in the midnight transfigures in a cruel vampire, attacking people, sucking their blood and transfiguring them to their turn, in evil persons. Even the real character that lived in the XV century and inspired the creation of the fictional Dracula, the Walachian Prince Vlad Ţepeş (or Vlad the Imp...
