Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Compiles representative work in the emerging research area on the relationship of disability to physical environment, in light of such disability rights legislation as the US Americans with Disabilities Act, the worldwide growth of the independent-living movement, rapid deinstitutionalization, and the maturation of functional assessment methodology. The authors, primarily architects and spatial designers, consider theory, reliability and validity, new directions in research methods, and measurement in practice. Annotation c.
