Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A "real deal" collection of essays following the trajectory of academic careers and offering advice and insights into the ways in which individual scholars have learned to juggle the demands of intellectual and personal concerns. The topics lend a hand up to beginners with discussions of creating and optimizing a career in academics, the challenges of teaching, doing research and getting published, and the road to tenure. Much farther in on that path, the authors branch off into the peripheral, traditional sidelines of reviewing, editing, administration, and consulting, taking a breather in conclusion by reflecting on the renewal of sabbaticals and speculating on future careers in education. Paper edition (unseen), $27.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
