“Change Wars,” published by Solution Tree, was recognized as the National Staff Development Council Book of the Year at the NSDC’s 41st Annual Conference held in St. Louis, Mo., December 5–9.    

“Change Wars” is the third anthology in the Solution Tree Leading Edge™ series, which is designed to showcase the work of education authorities. Other titles include “On Common Ground,” which focuses on professional learning communities; “Ahead of the Curve,” an anthology on assessment; and “On Excellence in Teaching,” which addresses effective instructional strategies from a theoretical, systemic, and classroom perspective. “Change Wars” provides an international scope of expertise on change leadership in education. It is edited by Andy Hargreaves and Michael Fullan. Contributors are Michael Barber, Linda Darling-Hammond, Richard Elmore, Fullan, Hargreaves, Jonathan Jansen, Ben Levin, Pedro Noguera, Douglas Reeves, Andreas Schleicher, Dennis Shirley, James Spillane, and Marc Tucker.

“Changing the world begins with a change in ourselves, and then with changes in one another,” write Hargreaves and Fullan. “This book brings to the surface the theories of practice about how to do that. For in the end, there is nothing as practical as a good theory.”
