Five articles on higher education in Australia and New Zealand are presented, along with two review articles. "Australian Higher Education Research and Society. Part I: Post-War Reconstruction and Expansion, 1940-1965" (D. S. Anderson and E. Eton) is a review of research on higher education in Australia and New Zealand since World War II. "Student Motivation and Study Strategies in University and College of Advanced Education Populations" (J. Biggs) describes research on three major motives and three cognate learning/study strategies for two sectors of tertiary education. "Increasing Personal Efficiency: A Case Study" (H. E. Stanton) demonstrates how a poorly functioning academic was helped to successfully reorganize his life and work using time-management techniques. "Learning to Teach" (S. J. Prokhovnik) suggests that lecturing is an art demanding imagination, scholarship, application, and enthusiasm. "Some Alternative Entry Characteristics as Factors in Tertiary Success" (J. R. Lublin) describes research that investigated entry characteristics associated with graduation 5 years later. Finally, review articles of nine books are presented. (SW)
