`Sally French and John Swain have put together a collection of highly readable and scholarly essays that reflect both the theoretical and practical implications of recent developments in the field. This book is essential reading for everyone interested in disability: highly recommended' - Colin Barnes, Centre for Disability Studies, University of Leeds
Recommended to students as the content of the book helps to support learners with their study.
The book will be used as recommended reading next time it is offered. Furthermore I will suggest to some students with particular interest in this field that they buy the book and use it for their final projects.
This is an excellent book for students seeking to understand disability. There are insightful and thought provoking chapters, that acknowledge both the signifcant milestones in disability politics alongside discussion as to future challenges. There is a welcome reference to disability arts. The final section provides useful 'viewpoints' from disabled peoples perspectives and the various social/health/threapy professions
This book is interesting and may fit in to the course we are planning in disability care.
A really good insight into the preception of disability. Particularly liked the 'Disability, Eugenics and Genetics' chapter by Shakespeare and the chapters on identity- thought provoking in a positive way.
The material provides excellent insight for the students
