National security policymakers in Australia need the advice and expertise of academics, and academics need to do more to engage with those in a position to put their ideas into practice, Anthony Bergin writes.
Presenting a collection of diary-style entries as though from a single academic year, Les Back chronicles three decades of his career in 'Academic Diary: Or Why Higher Education Still Matters.' The book offers witty and thought-provoking insight into such topics as writing, PhD supervision, viva examiners and dealing with academic colleagues, as well as reflecting on some of the serious challenges facing higher education today. Kate Bailey anticipates that this book will become a firm favourite that will be read, and re-read, for years to come.
