RGT is well-known in disability studies, but this very large and somewhat over-wrought book drains you and is a very basic book that surprisingly offers little in the way of new theories on visualizing disability. In fact, dis/ability is not the primary subject of the book (though it is an essential underpinning). Rather, this is a history of staring and visuality, which is at times interesting, but leaves me wanting more in terms of disability theory. Furthermore, she every so often speaks of cognitive and psychological disability, but does not delve deeply into how these can also be understood in terms of sight despite their general illegibility. Despite this, I will say that this is an accessible text in terms of language and ideas, and it offers some chapters that would be very good for teaching.
