KATHRYN HUME Edwin Erle Sparks Professor of English, Pennsylvania State University, USA.

"This 'survival manual' should be required reading for every doctoral student in the humanities who intends to pursue an academic career. In a realistic rather than idealistic approach, Professor Hume offers under one cover candid information not only for ABD's about to enter the job market but also for assistant professors during their first years in a tenure-track appointment. Written in engaging prose, this volume is a road map for success that stretches from sage advice for conference and campus interviews to departmental politics. The appendix contains many model examples of letters of application and of documents that doctoral students must submit when applying for their first faculty position." - Edward V. Williams, Ph.D., The Pennsylvania State University

"Deft, detailed, unerring, candid, upbeat, and filled with examples (including sample CVs and cover letters appropriate to various fields in the humanities, with variations for applying to schools that emphasize teaching and institutions emphasizing research), this is the best book of its kind that I've ever seen. It will be essential to job hunters all across the humanities. Those who own a copy and follow its counsel will enhance their employment prospects about tenfold. Those who don't will find themselves at a tremendous disadvantage. Highly recommended to graduate students, untenured junior faculty, and their mentors." - David Cowart, Louise Fry Scudder Professor of Humanities, University of South Carolina
