Additional Book Details

The new edition of this acclaimed text is an up-to-date introduction to the key themes, research, and controversies in disability studies.

The authors' innovative approach offers thorough coverage of:
diverse theoretical perspectives
historical context, from ancient times to the present
the impact of disability throughout the life course
a range of physical, sensory, and cognitive impairments
the place of disability in popular culture
ethical issues, such as genetic selection and physician-assisted suicide

While giving prominence to the voices of individuals, they provide a solid foundation for making sense of disability not only as a personal experience, but also as a social phenomenon.
