Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

This book also illustratesthis development has, in the main, been motivated by an attempt to assert or gainpower and why the study of blindness in conventional academic subjects such aspsychology, history and sociology is so important. We do this by presenting themain theories of disability and blindness that have informed the writing of thisbook, and a frame of reference for the historical story. Which places the book inthe broad context of theories of disability and blindness, within an academic andsymbolic context of physical impairment and the social mythologies that accompany such understanding.
