“Releasing the Full Potential of the Management Team” was the subject of the twenty-fourth National Business Conference held at the Harvard Business School. The seven aspects of management discussed are Effective Delegation and Control by the Sales Executive, the Controller, the General Manager, in Financial Institutions, and Sharpening Your Own Ability to Delegate and Control, and the Problem in Smaller Businesses. Among the contributors to this outstanding business book are General Lucius D. Clay, Elmer L. Lindseth, and Theodore O. Yntema. Together the authors show us how to tap hidden resources—in ourselves and in others—and also how to combine these resources by putting proper perspective on the different problems.

Jacket: Memory Speaks: On Losing and Reclaiming Language and Self, by Julie Sedivy, from Harvard University Press

Lost in Translation: Reclaiming Lost Language

In Memory Speaks: On Losing and Reclaiming Language and Self, Julie Sedivy sets out to understand the science of language loss and the potential for renewal. Sedivy takes on the psychological and social world of multilingualism, exploring the human brain’s capacity to learn—and forget—languages at various stages of life. She argues that the struggle to remain connected to an ancestral language and culture is a site of common ground: people from all backgrounds can recognize the crucial role of language in forming a sense of self.
