But, almost inevitably, many of us will be asked to take up a major leadership role at some point, and often unexpectedly. Managing professionals within a distinct organisational climate, with unique practices and politics, against the backdrop of a dynamic marketplace is no small matter. It is, in fact, often a sink-or-swim experience. But, have no fear, How to Lead Academic Departments Successfully is here. The book is a rich source of information that offers actionable advice and perhaps comfort for those of us who are about to face the challenges of academic leadership or are trying their very best at it every day. The book’s content provides lucid and eclectic answers to the question posed its title. It will be an inspiring companion of travel for any colleague on a leadership journey.’ – Ko de Ruyter, King’s College London, UK 2021 416 pp Hardback 978 1 78990 714 8 £125.00 / $180.00 Nov 2022 Paperback 978 1 0353 0903 0 c £35.00 / c $50.00 eBook • Elgaronline How To Guides ECONOMICS & FINANCE TITLES, OCTOBER - DECEMBER 2022 Handbook of Economic Nationalism Edited by Andreas Pickel, Trent University, Canada This cutting-edge Handbook puts economic nationalism in its historical context, from early industrialization to globalization.
