Books of Interest to CMHER Readers

Wheeler, M., Editor (2000). Teaching Negotiation: Ideas and Innovations. PON Books, Cambridge.
In support of a March 2000 negotiation pedagogy conference (see summary reports and video clips at
), and in response to growing interest in the field, Harvard's Program on Negotiation produced Teaching Negotiation: Ideas and Innovations (2000), a volume of papers edited by Professor Michael Wheeler. The volume brings together outstanding articles from the Negotiation Journal, PON Working Papers, and other work that has appeared in PON publications on the subject. Several authors of classic pieces in the book offer current perspectives on their original work in a reflections section. The 369-page paperback book is now available for purchase from PON books at
Stage, F.K. & Dannells, M. (2000). Linking Theory to Practice: Case Studies for Working with College Students. Sheridan Book, Ann Arbor.
According to Brunner-Routledge, the authors of the cases in this book have collective experience of over 250 years. The book provides a description and rationale for using the case study method when teaching theories in student affairs. It includes a brief overview of theories in the field and then presents a sample case analysis. The collection includes 35 case studies divided into six chapters.

The authors present a challenging array of problems to be tackled which represent the reality of today's complex college campus. The book supplements reading materials within student affairs preparation courses and might also be used in workshops for student affairs professionals, campus mediators and other paraprofessionals. The book includes a cursory overview of theories that guide student affairs practice.
Kickson III, M. & Stacks, D.W. (1992). Effective Communication for Academic Chairs. State University of New York Press, Albany.
According to SUNY Press, this handbook examines the communication aspects of the chair's management role in academia. Most academic department chairs are not trained in management skills, including communication strategies. While previous works have dealt with personnel and time management issues, this book illustrates how to communicate with faculty, students, consultation teams, and other administrators in ways that improve the workings of a department while decreasing the workload and tension that often accompany the appointment.
