Pages: ISBN: Are you a graduate student considering a career in academia or a new faculty member seeking practical advice about navigating the context of your workplace? If so, Christo- pher J.
Murry, Associate Professor of Higher Education, both from the University of Arkansas--Fayetteville, offer a thorough understanding of the pertinent issues and practical advice about how to succeed in higher education. The purpose of the book, as outlined in the preface, is to provide new faculty members with advice that will help them find success in academia. Lucas and Murry explain that faculty newcomers have already proven their self-assurance and independence through their graduate work, and therefore, it is often incorrectly assumed that they have every- thing they need to prosper; however, "there is abundant evidence to suggest otherwise" p.
They point out that for recent graduates the "environment may seem superficially familiar, but the role new faculty play within it is quite different" p.
Furthermore, many new faculty members are hired into programs that are significantly different from the program in which they were enrolled. Lucas and Murry concede that their practical advice will not work in every situation or for every individual.

However, they have endeavoured to include several suggestions for success in each area, and they encourage readers to try a number of different ideas and to select the ones that they find beneficial. The first section of the book, "Preliminary Considerations," covers four global top- ics: organizational cultures, norms that govern performance expectations, citizenship and collegiality, and mentoring. These topics define the working environment that is created by the socio-political context of the university as a work place. In the second section, "Faculty Work Activities," the authors focus more specifically on outlining the various responsibilities held by faculty members.
