This issue of Review of Applied Urban Research features "Leadership Patterns in Nebraska Communities," by Jack Ruff.

In the summer of 1979, the Center for Applied Urban Research undertook a study of leadership patterns and styles in Nebraska communities with populations of 2,500 to 5,000. Although that study focused its primary efforts on developing linkages between training programs and community development, the data provide some useful information related to the leadership structure of these communities. These data, describing the individuals who comprise the leadership structure in the study communities, are the focus of this article.
