Inside Graduate
Merit, Diversity, and
Faculty Gatekeeping
Julie R. Posselt
Politicians, judges, journalists,
parents and prospective students
subject the admissions policies
of undergraduate colleges
and professional schools to
considerable scrutiny, with much
public debate over appropriate
criteria. But the question of who
gets into Ph.D. programs has
by comparison escaped much
discussion. That may change with
the publication of Inside Graduate
AdmissionsWhile the departments
reviewed in the book remain secret,
the general process used by elite
departments would now appear
to be more open as a result of
Posselts book.

Why Torture Doesnt Work

The Neuroscience of Interrogation

 n Irish Examiner Best Book of the Year
 Times Higher Education Book of the Week
Shane OMara
A meticulously researched bookAs OMara shows, torture
techniques are mentally debilitating, affecting memory as well
as mood, and thereby compromise the capacity of victims to
form and deliver a reliable account of any information that they
may be withholding. Not only is torture morally deplorable,
therefore, but its outcome is also entirely unpredictable.
Giovanni Frazzetto, Financial Times

A Natural History of Human Morality

What Works

Michael Tomasello

Gender Equality by Design

If youre after a definitive guide to explain how humans

became an ultra-cooperative and, eventually, moral species,
this must be it.

Iris Bohnet

New Scientist
This is an extremely worthwhile addition to the literature
on the evolution of morality. It is well written and strikes an
excellent balance between easy accessibility and nuanced
and novel ideas.
Richard Joyce, author of The Evolution of Morality

Education and the Commercial Mindset

Samuel E. Abrams
Abrams describes eloquently the disconnect between the optimism underlying for-profit companies efforts to improve urban
education and the realities that their schools faced. He also describes the history of KIPP charters, their accomplishments, and
the limits of the KIPP model as a strategy for improving the life
chances of urban children growing up in low-income families.

Right up to board level, companies

should find in What Works not only
food for thought [about gender
bias], but a guide for effective
practical action as well.
Sarah Gordon, Financial Times
This is a must-have guide for
anyone in charge of a diversity
Julie Chappell,
Management Today
Provides a useful introduction to
all the available evidence showing
there is a business, as well as moral,
case for diversity. What Works
speaks to CEOs in a language they
will understand, taking the emotion
out of the argument and making
a pragmatic case for reshaping
workplace norms to make women
feel less alienated.

The Language Animal

The Full Shape of the Human Linguistic Capacity

Charles Taylor

Just as Humboldt believed that possessing a language is to be

continuously involved in trying to extend its powers of articulation,
Charles Taylors new book, The Language Animal, demonstrates how
the very study of language over time embodies the evolving human
effort to extend our understandingnot only of language, but of the
very self language helps to describe, propel, and transcend. It is a
deeply thoughtful, historically enriching, and ultimately luminous book.

Self and Soul

A Defense of Ideals
Mark Edmundson
 n Art of Manliness Best Book of the Year
 n Artery Best Book of the Year
[Edmundsons] bold and ambitious new book is partly a demonstration of
what a real education in the humanities, inspired by the goal of human
transformation and devoted to taking writers seriously, might look like
[It] quietly sets out to challenge many educational pieties, most of the
assumptions of recent literary studiesand his own chosen lifestyle.
Mathew Reisz, Times Higher Education

Evolution and Human Sexual Behavior

Peter B. Gray Justin R. Garcia

bookactually teaching about sexual behavior from an
evolutionary perspective.

 cholarly Achievement Award, North Central Sociological Association

Focusing on the pathways leading to the college experience, the authors

reveal an honest, if at times unflattering, look at the reality of the academic

How Economics Shapes Science

Paula Stephan
Economist Paula Stephan takes an exhaustive look at how publicly
funded science pays [its] bills, and how this affects research, researchers
and the economy. She argues that expanding universities and stagnant
budgets have made funders and scientists more risk-averse, and stunted
the development of young investigators.

Minds Online

Teaching Effectively with Technology

Michelle D. Miller

An outstanding book that provides a road map for truly effective online
teaching. What distinguishes [Millers] book from much of the research
available on teaching with technology, and pushes it beyond arguments
about improving access, is her emphasis on the ways in which online
teaching tools can actually improve learning for all studentsnot just
those who have no access to traditional face-to-face classrooms.
