Synopses & Reviews
As a society, we are increasingly recognizing the pervasiveness and significance of the disability experience. Indeed, disability is a universal concern. This innovative book discusses the disability experience from the perspective of the individual with a disability and from the perspective of society, and then explores the relationship between, these two viewpoints. Organized around broad themes as opposed to disability categories, with an engaging writing style and extensive references, Disability, Society, and the Individual introduces the reader to complex, important, and new ideas surrounding disability -- it's experience and it's social and cultural context. Includes discussion questions, learning activities, suggested readings, and first person accounts.
