The Mask of Benevolence: Disabling the Deaf Community

by

The Mask of Benevolence: Disabling the Deaf Community Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A look at the gulf that separates the deaf minority from the hearing world, this book sheds light on the mistreatment of the deaf community by a hearing establishment that resists understanding and awareness. Critically acclaimed as a breakthrough when it was first published in 1992, this new edition includes information on the science and ethics of childhood cochlear implants. An indictment of the ways in which experts in the scientific, medical, and educational establishment purport to serve the deaf, this book describes how they, in fact, do them great harm.

Synopsis:

Harlan Lane's The Mask of Benevolence in this new DawnSignPress edition, is expanded to include a new preface and a new chapter on the science and ethics of childhood cochlear implants. Lane's discussion of cochlear implants from a Deaf perspective is one of the few that considers this controversial subject.

The Mask of Benevolence was critically acclaimed as a breakthrough when first published and the issues brought to the forefront are still deeply relevant today. Everyone involved in the Deaf-World will benefit from this book that challenges the reader to see these issues from a Deaf point-of-view.
