Crossing Class Lines: A Diary.
Academe, v87 n4 p37-41 Jul-Aug 2001
Presents a diary of one month spent by a professional-track professor as an adjunct. Discusses the large salary decrease, the turmoil of job insecurity, and the "invisibility" of adjunct faculty. Asserts that although faculty should feel bound together by the work they have chosen, the class rift between tenure-track and adjunct faculty has created a lose-lose situation for everyone. (EV)
