Beschreibung

Passionate, engaging and challenging, this second edition of the ground-breaking Disability Studies: An Interdisciplinary Introduction is a contemporary introduction to this diverse and complex field.

Taking an interdisciplinary and critical approach, the book:

  • examines a diverse range of theories and perspectives and engages with current debates in the field
  • explores key areas of analysis, with chapters devoted to the individual, society, community and education
  • applies a global perspective encompassing examples from the UK, Australia, Scandinavia, the US, and Canada.

Encouraging and stimulating readers using thought-provoking questions, exercises and activities, Disability Studies is a rich and rewarding read for students and researchers engaging with disability across the social sciences.
