Rahul Bedi, PhD, Chair, Management, New York, School of Business, is author of "Corporate Governance Triangle in the Post Sarbanes-Oxley Period" (Lambert Academic Publishing AG & Co, Koln, Germany, November 2009). In this book Dr. Bedi presents valuable research into the wielding of corporate power by industry’s most powerful corporate stakeholder – public pension funds. The book provides a historical look at the growing recognition of pension funds as institutions capable of influencing corporate actions, and then surveys the receptiveness of CEOs and independent directors to that influence on a number of hot-button issues. 

Syleecia Thompson, PhD, Management, New York, School of Business, is author of "Rhythm Without Blues: The Dichotomy of a Music Genre" (Strategic Book Publishing, November 2009). The daughter of legendary soul singer Syl Johnson and sister of Grammy-nominated Rhythm & Blues singer Syleena Johnson, Dr. Thompson’s book reveals the dark side of the industry, and what an artist has to go through to bring his or her talent to the mainstream. The book includes more than 20 unedited interviews from artists, producers, lawyers, managers, and industry insiders including industry giants Micky “MeMpHiTz” Wright of Jive Records, and Nicci Gilbert of the group Brownstone. 

Michael Montlack, Liberal Arts and Sciences, New York, School of Liberal Arts, is author of "The Slip" (Poets Wear Prada Press, October 2009). Author Peter Covino, winner of the 2007 PEN/America Osterweil Award, describes "The Slip" as “engagingly novelistic even as these memoristic vignettes are untamed by wit and scathing humor.” Other books by Professor Montlack include "Cover Charge" (Gertrude Press, 2007 – winner of the 2007 Gertrude Prize) and "Girls, Girls, Girls" (Pudding House, 2008).
