Shirley Geok-lin Lim (born 1944) is a Malaysian-born American poet, fiction writer, and academic. Lim was born in Malacca, Malaysia, into a life of poverty, deprivation, parental violence, and abandonment in a culture that, at that time, rarely recognized girls as individuals. Reading was a solace, retreat, and escape for her. Scorned by teachers for her love of English over her "native" tongue, she was looked down upon for her pursuit of English literature.

The eleven essays collected in this volume describe individual African American, Chicano and Chicana, Native American, Asian American, gay and lesbian, and white female experiences in academe. Representing a wide variety of fields and career paths in the profession, the authors explore topics such as marginalization, alienation, and persistent discrimination; the obstacles women and minorities face in advancing their careers, as well as strategies for overcoming those obstacles; the backlash against affirmative action; and the implications of gender, sexuality, race, and power in the classroom. While many of the essays give strikingly personal accounts of their authors' struggles, the collection as a whole reveals the complexity of academe's response to the challenge of faculty diversity.

Power, Race, and Gender in Academe is an excellent resource and teaching guide for junior faculty members as they enter the profession. The volume includes thoughtful discussions of hiring and tenure practices, classroom and service evaluations, and other departmental procedures and their effects on a multicultural faculty.
