Cases in Organization and Leadership
Leadership is one of those elusive notions that everyone believes they can explain but few actually know how to command. Patricia Mitchell has done us a wonderful service as well as increased our knowledge base and understanding of the nuances of decision‐making across many fields and professions. I suspect it will become a standard text in leadership courses everywhere.

The Impact of General Education on Student Learning in the 21st Century
"Generally Speaking: The Impact of General Education on Student Learning in the 21st Century, edited by Madeline J. Smith and Kristen L. Tarantino, is an excellent text that provides an overview of the changes in general education curricula during the 21st Century, and how those changes have positively affected student learning. As someone who spent the last half of her career working to make general education relevant and valuable to all students, I find this text to be an exceptional resource for faculty, administrators, and assessment professionals, as well as graduate students looking to become university professors."

A Loving Memoir of Richard A. Brosio, Ph.D.
I first met Richard Brosio when we were graduate students at The University of Michigan in the late 1960s, and we collaborated over the next four decades around our mutual commitment to the crucial role of the social foundations of education in teacher preparation and to advocate for educational equity, justice for all, and true democracy as an antidote to capitalist hegemony. Richard brought to these efforts great intellectual prowess, focused energy, political insight, and personal courage. These same qualities are central to this powerful book by his wife Martha in which she describes Richard’s end-of-life choices in the face of illness that robbed him of his skillful powers of communication. The book also highlights his teaching and writing and their life together. It is a monumental love story. It is sad, yet inspirational. It is also joyful, as it celebrates his life and their time together. It causes me to admire both Richard and Martha all the more.
