Ethnic minority women in the U.S. education system often feel that they have "two strikes against them." In this volume, editor Lynn Brodie Welch brings together contributions by African-American, Hispanic, and other scholars who discuss various issues surrounding academic minority women, their dilemmas, and the roles they are creating for their successors. Subjects include the need for sensitization to cultural differences and methods for dealing with subtle and overt discrimination. Section One considers the hostile campus climate from the perspectives of students, educators, and administrators. The authors call for support and networking systems, and make suggestions for conflict resolution. Sections Two and Three address the special concerns of African-American and Hispanic women in higher education, respectively. Section Four discusses the urgent need for women educators in the Third World, and examines the status of university women internationally. Perspectives on Minority Women in Higher Education will prove useful to scholars in education, women's studies, and minority/culture studies.

Editorial Reviews

?. . . the book confronts a theme whose discussion is long overdue. Because many of the chapters can stand alone, the volume is recommended to scholars and practitioners alike. For scholars it will stimulate inquiry into an area where research is lacking and which needs to be explored. Practitioners will find that they can learn about perspectives of which they may not be aware, and they can choose those recommendations that can help them on their respective campuses. All in all, reading this book will begin a much needed discussion.?-Journal of Higher Education
