The care of the sick, wounded, and dying during the American Civil War was a complex endeavor that brought ordinary men and women into contact with the terror of the battlefield. Hospital Transports is a compilation of letters and other papers written by physicians and nurses serving aboard the Union hospital steamboat Daniel Webster in the summer of 1862. The text details sleeping arrangements, cooking and feeding schedules, medical practices, and the incorporation of liberated slaves from the Lee plantation into the daily work of the ship. Clearly described are the emotional, visceral reactions of the corps of medical personnel who, as their ship makes its way along the Potomac picking up casualties, question the philosophies at the root of war, and the metaphysical questions concerning the definitions of life and death.

The Resource Handbook for Academic Deans, Third Edition

This thoroughly revised volume is written by and for academic administrators. Each chapter explores a particular challenge or issue that has been identified by the American Conference of Academic Deans (ACAD) members as most relevant in their role as academic leaders, then provides practical step-by-step guidance that can help deans navigate even the toughest of situations.

“There is no map for thriving as a dean, but this handbook offers an essential guidebook and compass for the journey. Both informed and inspired, it is above all humane in presenting the purpose, practice, and privilege of a dean’s good work.”

—William J. Craft, president, Concordia College

“Academic deans, both new and seasoned, will benefit enormously from this collection of ruminations by experienced and successful academic leaders on the issues that are most prominent and often most vexing for those who enter the arena of academic leadership. For newcomers to the deanery, this handbook will be an eye-opener; and for veteran deans, a helpful reminder of both first principles and best practices.”

—Richard Ekman, president, The Council of Independent Colleges

“ACAD meetings and electronic communications are marked by collaboration and by sharing means for encouraging faculty and student success. The handbook exemplifies that spirit of collaboration as members articulate their candid and helpful recommendations for enhancing work with faculty and students.”

—Scott E. Evenbeck, president, Stella and Charles Guttman Community College

“ACAD has created an extraordinary resource for the entire postsecondary community. For new and seasoned deans alike, the ACAD handbook offers a wealth of generous, wise, and practical guidance. Presenting lessons learned both from lived experiences and from organizational scholarship, the handbook will help deans succeed in their myriad essential roles.”

—Carol Geary Schneider, president, Association of American Colleges and Universities
