STATUES AND STORMS: Leading through change
by Max Price
Dr Max Price served as Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cape Town from 2008-2018, a tumultuous time for the university. He has now written an autobiographical account of some of the issues faced during his tenure.
The book, Statues and Storms, offers a gripping insider’s account during a transformative period in South African higher education. In the wake of the Rhodes Must Fall protests, universities across the country were engulfed in sustained and often violent demonstrations, challenging institutional cultures and sparking a global movement.
With a focus on leadership and the difficult decisions leaders must make during rapid transformation, the book also explores enduring themes in academia, including academic and artistic freedom, the limits of protest rights, institutional racism, culture and inclusiveness, and the funding of higher education.
The book is available at all good bookstores, and can be borrowed from the Jacob Gitlin Library.
