Hiring in Good Times and Bad book cover

Hiring in Good Times and Bad: A Comprehensive Guide to Entry-Level Staffing by T. Scott McTague (’92 M.S.) of Dallas (Quorum Books). McTague, a limited partner at Batrus Hollweg International in Plano, draws upon his experience to give corporate decision and policy makers and their staffs the tools they need to find and keep the right people. Among the topics discussed are what interviewers need to know and the measurable impact of turnover on the bottom line.

Making Something Happen: American Political Poetry Between the World Wars by Michael Thurston (’87) of Northampton, Mass. (University of North Carolina Press). Thurston offers a new look at the political poetry of Edwin Rolfe, Langston Hughes, Ezra Pound and Muriel Rukeyser, arguing that partisan poetry demands reflection not only on how we evaluate poems, but also on what we value in them. Thurston is an assistant professor of English at Smith College in Northampton.

A Different Game book cover

A Different Game: Golf After 50 by Hershel Sarbin and Jim Brown (’71 Ph.D.) of Atlanta, Ga. (Burford Books). This practical guide for the over-50 golfer includes equipment and health advice, strength and flexibility exercises, and tips from Senior PGA pros. Brown, editor of the Georgia Tech Sports Medicine and Performance Newsletter and a former coach, also had another book published recently. Sports Talent (Human Kinetics Publishers) is a guide for identifying and developing outstanding athletes.


Stephen F. Austin, Empresario of Texas by Gregg Cantrell, professor of history (Yale University Press). The first full-length biography of Austin published in more than 70 years, this book was submitted by its publisher for consideration for the Pulitzer Prize for Biography. It has won the Kate Broocks Bates Award from the Texas State Historical Association, the Award of Merit from the American Association for State and Local History, the T.R. Fehrenbach Award from the Texas Historical Commission and the Philosophical Society of Texas Book Award, among other honors. In what he calls a “warts and all” biography, Cantrell covers Austin’s negative as well as positive qualities. He also focuses on his personal side in addition to his public career — something previous biographers of Austin did not do.

Brass Rerformance and Pedagogy book cover

Brass Performance and Pedagogy by Keith Johnson, Regents Professor of music (Prentice Hall). The book is written for the teacher who works with brass instrument players at all stages of development. Johnson discusses major aspects of brass playing to help the instructor find the most musical and efficient means possible to help students develop their potential. He focuses on ideas he has used in more than three decades of teaching music students. Topics covered in the book include creative thinking, how it can be taught and how it differs from analytical thought.
