TO RISE ABOVE PRINCIPLE: THE MEMOIRS OF AN UNRECONSTRUCTED DEAN
                         (published under the pen-name Josef Martin)  University of Illinois Press, 1988 

This book was long out-of-print.  A second edition that includes some additional material was published by Wipf & Stock in 2012.
A few extracts from reviews are  HERE; all reviews are listed HERE     
               and please see how I've changed my mind about some things HERE 

A year after the book was published, the author's real identity was revealed 
in the keynote speech at the annual meeting of the Council of Colleges of Arts & Sciences.
A transcript of that speech is an Appendix in the fothcoming second edition
