Disabled Policy: America's Programs for the Handicapped: A Twentieth Century Fund Report / Edition 1by Edward D. Berkowitz
Pub. Date: 02/28/2003
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Combining history and an analysis of policy today, this book exposes the contradictions in America's disability policy and suggests means of remedying them. Based on careful archival research and interviews with policymakers, the book illustrates the dilemmas that public policies pose for the handicapped: the present system forces too many people with physical impairments into retirement, despite the availability of constructive alternatives.
