Is My Armor Straight?: A Year in the Life of a University President

Richard Berendzen, Author Adler & Adler Publishers $0 (351p) ISBN 978-0-917561-01-6
As president of American University in Washington, D.C., Berendzen is frequently asked, in particular by his critics, ""What do you do?'' The diary he kept during the 198384 academic year provides answers: he recruits, both students and benefactors; he promotes public awareness of the university; he contributes his resources to the educational community at home and abroad; he is also a husband and father. The modern university president, he shows us, plays many roles at frenetic pacewitness his long pursuit of a moneyed Arab to sponsor a campus center. Berendzen, whose other specialty is astronomy, here covers a large portion of the planet in his forays on his school's behalf. January 20
