Editorial Reviews

Sex Roles: A Journal of Research
Chonchita Battle and Chontrese Doswell's Building Bridges for Women of Color in Higher Education: A Practical Guide for Success (2004) is a 261-page compilation of both sensitively developed anecdotal stories of professional journeys and survey results that address Women of Color within the upper levels of administration and those with tenure-track academic appointments... I consider this text a must-read for three general populations: all current administrators in higher education, Women of Color who are currently administrators and/or hold tenure-track academic appointments, and those who aspire to academic appointments and/or the position of presidency and/or other upper levels of administration... the book is excellent and an easy read. The journey to success will continue to be fraught with difficulty and challenge as all worthwhile adventures are, however, I believe it will be much easier with this text in one's professional library.
