Disability, Society, and the Individual-2nd Ed.

Author(s): Julie Smart

This new book provides a comprehensive examination of the experience of disability. Organized around broad themes rather than disability categories, its content focuses on definitions of disability, societal response to people with disabilities, including discrimination; and the experience of disability from the perspectives of both individuals with disabilities and society.

With an engaging writing style and completely updated extensive references, Disability, Society, and the Individual prepares the reader to understand the experience of disability in its social and cultural context. The text includes discussion questions, learning activities, suggested readings, and first-person accounts.
