The Sabbatical Book.
Ralston, Jayne; Ralston, Tony
A handbook of information for faculty going on sabbatical or leave is presented, based on several personal experiences with planning, completing, and returning from sabbaticals. Eleven chapters are as follows: (1) applying for a sabbatical; (2) where to go and for how long; (3) can you afford it (e.g. taxes); (4) renting your house (must you rent, the tax situation, how to rent the house, choosing tenants, showing the house, the lease, preparing the house for tenants, and horror stories); (5) renting a place to live (house or apartment, costs, how to go about renting a house, and questions to ask); (6) schools for your children (language problems, public or private schools, local or international schools, and coping with problems); (7) planning before you leave (e.g. cancelling services, mail, and cars); (8) getting settled (money and banking, furnishings, and charge accounts); (9) travel (how to go and return, buying abroad, and the cost of travel); (10) returning from a sabbatical; and (11) sabbaticals in England (universities in England, living in London, and living in Britain). Three appendices present a list of books to read, a planning checklist, and a discussion of sabbaticals in the State University of New York. (SM)
