Reviews

'Gregory Semenza's Graduate Study for the Twenty-first Century is a tough-minded, witty, generous discussion of how to enter the profession of scholarship and teaching. The appendices alone are worth the price of the book; Semenza provides samples of everything from course syllabi and job letters to materials on the teaching portfolio, book prospectus, conference participation everything a serious graduate student needs to succeed. The book should be required reading for graduate students and their professors.' - Barry V. Qualls, Dean of Humanities, Rutgers University, USA
