Book Title: Caesar's Wife: The College President's Spouse: Minister Without Portfolio Or The President's Conscience?
Publisher: Railroad Street Press
Author: David A Williams
When a college or university board of trustees selects a new president – and that president has a spouse/partner -- the board, the president and the spouse all think they know what the spouse/partner’s role will be. Unfortunately, and often, each of these folks has a completely different understanding of what the spouse/partner’s role should be. “Caesar’s Wife” discusses the common ethical, legal and community relations problems which can and do arise from such misunderstandings. The book descrbes simple, inexpensive, nontraditional steps which the board, president and spouse/partner can take to effect constructive, amicable, honest and productive relationships between and among themselves; to the considerable advantage of each other and the institution.
