"Why do I lead?" With this deceptively simple question, best-selling author Baruti K. Kafele begins a powerful examination of what it takes to make a school community achieve the greatest success in the classroom and beyond.

Along with many other insights, this book shows how best to • Inspire and motivate students, teachers, and other school staff to approach their work with vigor and purpose; • Ensure that all students, regardless of color, creed, or origin, are valued and represented in the school culture; • Focus mission and vision statements to address students' most critical needs and integrate shared values and objectives into the fabric of the school; and • Engage parents and other community members so that they feel a stake in the school's success. Brimming with passion, written from the heart, and informed by hard-earned experience, this transformative book is essential reading for principals and other building-level administrators determined to reinvigorate their practice, revitalize their staff, and--most importantly--guarantee the strongest outcomes for students.

You're an Assistant Principal. Whatever your status—the sole AP in your school, one of two or more APs in your school, a career AP, an AP aspiring to the principalship—yours is one of the most misunderstood and underutilized positions in education. Positioned between teachers and the principal, you are an instructional leader. However, you are not the leader of the school. Therefore, you must carefully navigate your way to ensure that you thrive in your role without "stepping on the toes" of your principal. In The Assistant Principal 50, award-winning, four-time principal Baruti Kafele presents reflective questions that encompass the breadth and depth of the assistant principalship—from finding your leadership "lane" to thriving and being an asset to your principal. Kafele infuses the book (which also includes guidance and insights for principals and aspiring assistant principals) from beginning to end with personal anecdotes and accounts of both failures and successes from his years as an assistant principal. He arms you with tools and insights that will drive you to view the assistant principalship as critical to the climate and culture of your school as well as to student achievement. You, assistant principal, play a critical role in your school's success. The questions that Kafele asks you to consider will aid you as you hone your leadership skills toward becoming an effective leader in your school.

Philosophical Foundations of Fiduciary Law

Fiduciary law is a critically important body of law. Fiduciary duties ensure the integrity of a remarkable variety of relationships, institutions, and organizations. They apply to relationships of great personal significance, including in some jurisdictions the relationship between parents and children. They structure a wide variety of commercial relationships, and they are essential to the regulation of relationships between professional service providers and their clients, including relationships between lawyer and client, doctor and patient, and investment manager and client. Fiduciary duties, perhaps uniquely in private law, challenge traditional ways of marking the boundaries between private and public law, inasmuch as they figure prominently in public governance. Indeed, there is even a storied tradition of thinking of the authority of the state in fiduciary terms. Notwithstanding its importance, fiduciary law has been woefully under-analysed by legal theorists. Filling this gap with a series of chapters by leading theorists, this book includes chapters on: the nature of fiduciary relationships, the connection between fiduciary duties and morality, the content and significance of fiduciary loyalty, the economic significance of fiduciary law, the application of fiduciary principles to public law and international law, the import of fiduciary relationships to theories of authority, and various other fundamental topics in the field. In many cases, new and important questions are raised by the book's chapters. Indeed, this book not only offers a much-needed theoretical assessment of fiduciary topics, it defines the field going forward, setting an agenda for future philosophical study of fiduciary law.

Pharmacology, Biology, and Clinical Applications of Androgens Current Status and Future Prospects Edited by Shalender Bhasin, Henry L. Gabelnick, Jeffrey M. Spieler, Ronald S. Swerdloff, Christina Wang, and Chuck Kelly As agents that affect the male primary and accessory sex organs, androgens--particularly the hormones testosterone and androsterone--play a critical role in the development, functionality, and overall health of the male reproductive system. However, since androgens also have far-ranging effects on metabolism, neurological activity, and behavior, scientists exploring the contraceptive or therapeutic potential of androgens need reliable, up-to-date information on the complex biological activities of these agents. Pharmacology, Biology, and Clinical Applications of Androgens: Current Status and Future Prospects presents contributions from leading investigators around the world, offering a focused, state-of-the-art summary of the central issues and controversies in androgen research. The book is arranged into sections covering androgen physiology, androgens and the prostate, and the neurobehavioral and metabolic effects of androgens--as well as their role in disease therapy and male contraception, and the various delivery systems for each application. Every chapter in the text provides an expert opinion on a cutting-edge topic in the field while highlighting the key points of dissent and disagreement within the scientific community. This approach is intended to foster a deeper understanding of the status of androgen research and lay the groundwork for future investigations in each area. This book explores such current topics as: * Androgen regulation of Sertoli cell function * Testosterone and spermatogenesis * Androgen effects on benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostate cancer * Androgen effects on cognitive processes, sexual function, and aggressive behavior * Contraceptive efficacy of hormonal suppression of spermatogenesis * The latest transdermal and implantation delivery systems for androgens Offering multifaceted coverage of the field, Pharmacology, Biology, and Clinical Applications of Androgens is an indispensable aid to all basic scientists and clinical investigators interested in the biological actions of either natural or synthetic androgens.
