Citadel professor receives national recognition

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- Citadel professor Dorothy Perrin Moore has received national recognition for her latest book "CAREERPRENEURS: Lessons From Leading Women Entrepreneurs on Building a Career Without Boundaries."

During the 2001 Book Expo America Convention, ForeWord Magazine named "CAREERPRENEURS" this year's Book of the Year winner in the business category, one of 38 categories in which more than 800 books were considered for recognition. Entrants came from independent book publishers and the 120 members of the American Association of University Presses.

Dr. Moore's book was selected from among the six finalists in the business category, including two backed by the prestigious Harvard Business School Press.

"This is a top academic honor. It's very exciting and rewarding," she said.

ForeWord Magazine began in 1998 to provide news and reviews about independent and university presses to the academic publishing community and to provide an affordable advertising vehicle for independent presses to reach book buyers.

Dr. Moore is the Distinguished Professor of Entrepreneurship at The Citadel where she has taught since 1981.

In addition to her teaching responsibilities, she is a frequent speaker and lecturer on business, entrepreneurship and management. Dr. Moore also writes a newspaper column that appears regularly in The Post and Courier in Charleston and is the recipient of the 1997 Academy of Management Sage Scholar Award for outstanding contributions to research on gender in organizations.

"Careerpreneurs: Lessons From Leading Women Entrepreneurs on Building a Career Without Boundaries" recounts the real-life experiences of more than 100 leading women in business, problems they have faced, leadership and management styles and successful strategies for succeeding in business.

"The book is for the professional who wants to be successful as an entrepreneur or corporate career developer. It discusses how to lead people and grow firms," Dr. Moore said.
