From Publishers Weekly
"Audism" is the term that psychology professor Lane, who is not deaf, uses in this forceful indictment of what he calls "the hearing establishment," which he portrays as a colonial power overseeing the needs of deaf subjects.

This was a required reading for one of my college classes and it was very informational. I think that i would have liked it better if i was not required to read it.
