If you liked A Legacy of Heart and Mind—the history of Emory written by Gary Hauk 91PhD—you’ll love Where Courageous Inquiry Leads: The Emerging Life of Emory University.

Filling in gaps where his previous volume left off, Hauk, vice president and deputy to the president and widely considered the University’s resident historian, and coeditor Sally Wolff King 79G 83PhD recruited sixty writers from Emory and beyond to tell the stories of the past half-century—from the desegregation of Grady Hospital to the founding of the Department of Film Studies, and from the growth of environmental consiousness to the appointment of distinguished professors.

“Emory has endured because of the virtue and stamina of individual men and women who knew where this courageous inquiry should lead,” Hauk writes. “The forty-four chapters in this book tell story after story of an academic community striving to exercise the courage of its ideals and its questions.”

This is one of those cases when the sequel lives up to the original. Where Courageous Inquiry Leads is due out in August. For more information, write to emory@bookhouse.net, or call 404.727.5798.
