Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Persons with disabilities constitute the largest, most diverse minority group. Bryan (U. of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center) frames the concepts of disability, rehabilitation, and discrimination with definitions, statistics, and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The author examines the impact of having a disability (including AIDS) on major racial/ethnic groups as well as women and the elderly, and ways in which those in the helping professions can truly be of service to the growing ranks of persons often doubly discriminated against.
