A comprehensive, edited book that addresses a range of important issues in education and has chapters focused on particular roles (Presidents,VPs, Deans, Chairs) in Academe. I wrote the chapter on Chairs as Institutional Leaders and was a co-author on the chapter Requisites for Sustainable Institutional Change. If you were to buy one book that covers much of the administration of higher education, this would be it.
