Many of the chapters in this handbook are filled with 'ah hahs,' quiet smiles, and those private revelations that people have when reading an insightful statement they wish they themselves had made.... As is true for most of the Jossey-Bass professional handbooks, each chapter stands alone and offers varying degrees of information and usefulness."--Journal of Higher Education"The authors address the critical issues and skills necessary for higher education administration. The book covers a wide range of topics that would be appropriate for the beginning administrator as well as the seasoned veteran. The essays provide information on the practical day-to-day activities of higher education administration as well as the more abstract concepts of strategic decision-making and the political realities that surround university life. The book is recommAnded; it has such a broad brush approach that it is practical for an introductory course in higher education as well as a solid reference for the practicing administrator."--Choice
