If I Only Had a Brain: Deconstructing Brain Injury by Mark Sherry
This book offers a rich, insider's viewpoint of the lived experience of brain injury. Sherry, a survivor of brain injury himself, uses a cross-disciplinary theoretical approach (drawing upon the social and medical models of disability and combining them with lessons from feminism, queer theory, postcolonial and postmodern literature) to frame an enriching narrative about the lived experience of brain injury.
Mark Sherry, Endowed Chair of Disability Studies at The University of Toledo, is an internationally known researcher on disability issues - particularly brain injury and disability hate crimes. A keynote speaker many major conferences in Australia, New Zealand and the United States, Dr. Sherry has published in Disability andSociety, The Review of Disability Studies and DisabilityStudies Quarterly.
