Mamphela Ramphele, successful businesswoman and one of few outspoken black voices, offers both indictment and inspiration. In her new book she touches upon: the distrust between South Africa's people, incomplete reconciliation and violent crime, the failure of schools and the government's skills programs to educate South Africans, globalization and how South Africa is failing to fill its place in Africa and the world, the costs of Black Economic Empowerment and 'transformation' in the private sector and in government, problems of leadership in South Africa. Despite her spirited criticisms of mistakes made, Dr Ramphele remains upbeat about what can be achieved. Her insights into the lingering insecurities of some black South Africans and the psychology behind many of the failures of government are completely fresh. With great empathy she helps us understand why we act the way we do. At the same time she urges South Africans to overcome their immaturities and aim for excellence. Her new book is a powerful call to action.

In this impressive and comprehensive volume, Levine and coauthor Diane R. Dean provide an authoritative and richly textured picture of the much-discussed current generation." —Howard Gardner, Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education "Arthur Levine and Diane R. Dean take the long view of today's generation of college students. This is a brilliant examination of what has shaped our young people, what they are doing with the tools they have, and where they are headed. It is a diagnosis of what ails them, a celebration of their strengths, and a compelling and generous prescription for their future—and ours." —Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Alphonse Fletcher University Professor, Harvard University "Through this captivating portrait of the aspirations, values, and unique needs of today's college students, Levine and Dean's clearly written and engaging book ought to generate a national discussion of how higher education can be restructured in order to respond to and prepare the next generation of college-educated adults—not only for effective functioning in the workplace, but also to live lives as whole human beings who can help to lead our society to a healthier place." —Alexander W. Astin and Helen S. Astin, Distinguished Professors of Higher Education emeriti, UCLA; authors, Cultivating the Spirit: How Higher Education Can Enhance Students' Inner Lives "I can't say enough about how important this work is.

The authorized biography of Sir James Barrie, Bart, O. M. (1860?1937) playwright and novelist. Best known as the author of Peter Pan, Barrie was born in Kirriemuir, Angus, Scotland, educated at Edinburgh University and initially worked as a journalist in England. His early books comprised novels and stories about Scottish provincial life, but from about 1900 his plays were international successes, especially Quality Street, The admirable Crichton and, later, Dear Brutus. Mackail, who in his own childhood had known Barrie as a family friend, provides a respectful survey of Barrie's life and career, eschewing detailed analysis of the works in favour of historical description.

What is the essence of leadership? Richard Larkins, a major figure of Australian science, medicine, and university administration, provides a rare, candid account of a life lived in the public eye, and of the philosophy he has drawn upon to negotiate the personal and professional challenges this life has thrown up. High above the hushed crowd, Rex tried to remain focused. Still, he could not shake one nagging thought: he was an old dog and this was a new trick. These words lay beneath a Gary Larson cartoon showing a dog riding a unicycle on a tightrope in a circus bigtop while juggling balls with its front paws, swinging a hoop round its middle, balancing a jug on its head and holding a cat in its mouth. The card with the cartoon was sent to me by my long-time scientific colleague, Marjorie Dunlop, to mark my transition from Dean of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences at the University of Melbourne to Vice-Chancellor and President of Monash University in 2003. I had just turned 60 and this was indeed a new trick. I started writing these reflections three days after I completed my term at Monash University. I was entering the next phase of my life. It would be studded with a variety of interesting and challenging part-time activities. I thought it an appropriate time to reflect on the tricks I have learnt both as a young dog and an old dog and the experiences I have had in an adult life time spent in medicine, research, health policy and higher education.

In 1857 all of the Arts students at the University of Sydney could fit into a single photograph. Now there are more than one million university students in Australia. After World War II, Australian universities became less elite but more important, growing from six small institutions educating less than 0.2 per cent of the population to a system enrolling over a quarter of high school graduates. And yet, universities today are plagued with ingrained problems. More than 50 per cent of the cost of universities goes to just running them. They now have an explicit commercial focus. They compete bitterly for students and funding, an issue sharply underlined by the latest federal budget. Scholars rarely feel their vice-chancellors represent them and within their own ranks, academics squabble for scraps. Knowing Australia is a perceptive, clear-eyed account of Australian universities, recounting their history from the 1850s to the present. Investigating the changing nature of higher education, it asks whether this success is likely to continue in the 21st century, as the university’s hold over knowledge grows ever more tenuous.
