Max Price on his tenure as Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cape Town, July 2008 - June 2018.

"Brilliant! A gripping read that is sweeping in its systemic focus, yet granular and sufficiently detailed about the events at UCT during #FeesMustFall. Empathetic to the social justice agenda, yet truthful about not only the inability of many activists to understand the complexities of institutional change, but also the malevolent actions of some who profess to be progressive. A necessary corrective to much of what passes as the scholarly literature on #FeesMustFall that is overly romanticised and propagandistic." Adam Habib, Director of the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London

"Statues and Storms offers a masterclass in crisis leadership in higher education and reveals along the way the personal and familial costs of leading in difficult places" Jonathan Jansen, Distinguished Professor of Education at Stellenbosch University
