From the Publisher"This work balances theory and relevance very well, and would certainly aid students in understanding a number of key issues including: the idea of personal stance, the values imbedded in professional diagnosis and treatment, and the impact of treatment on people's lived experience, and best practices in the identification of problems and treatments to achieve social justice."
"The manuscript does a really nice job of outlining a multi-level theory of disability. The content examines the person's experience within the content of a physical, social, and political environment."
"This text is a step in bringing disability studies into "adulthood." Previous works have raised awareness of disability and societal problems facing persons with disabilities from a 20th Century perspective. This text addresses contemporary and historical issues in a new and important way. It helps readers look at the past with an historical lens and the present in a way that challenges easy assumptions and assertions. By tackling hard issues, it helps legitimize disability as an attribute of diversity, while looking deeply into social structures and values that have led to current disability constructs."
