From the Publisher
"Long overdue, Claiming Disability both carves out a new field of study, and introduces and educates readers to disability studies as a vibrant space of intellectual work. Linton weaves in and out of disciplines—queer studies, traditional educational psychology, literary criticism, critical legal studies—without a blink. Both precise and expansive, she declares and defines disability studies in ways that are systematic, theoretically engaging, and policy-relevant."
-Michelle Fine,City University of New York
"Claiming Disability is the most comprehensive book in disability studies to come along yet. It wisely defines terms and concepts, linking them to and questioning the dominant issues in identity politics and multiculturalism, while mapping a direction for future study. A must read for anyone seriously thinking about the body and body politics in the postmodern era."
-Lennard Davis,author of Enforcing Normalcy: Disability, Deafness and the Body
"Provides a broadened and enriched definition of disability, and its author unfolds a compelling way to evaluate Special Education."
-Laurie R. Lehman,Educators for Urban Minorities
