Chronicles how disabled people and their organizations have challenged the conventional, individualistic and medical explanations for disabled people's individual and collective disadvantage.

Full Description

For most of the twentieth century, people with disabilities have been regarded as a victimsa of their condition and a a burdena on society. More recently, however, disabled people and their organizations across Europe and North America have challenged conventional explanations for their individual and collective disadvantage, calling for policy measures to change the image and status of disabled people in the Western world. In this new book, Barnes and Mercer provide a concise and accessible introduction to the concept of disability. Drawing on a burgeoning a disability studiesa literature from around the world, and from a range of disciplinary perspectives, the authors explore the evolution of this concept and offer a wide--ranging critique of established academic, policy and professional orthodoxies. The book highlights disabled peoplesa exclusion and marginalization in key areas of social activity and participation across different historical and cultural contexts, such as family life and reproduction, education, employment, leisure, cultural imagery and politics.The analysis concentrates on disability as a distinctive form of social oppression similar to that experienced by women, minority ethnic and a raciala groups, and lesbians and gay men. Key issues addressed include: theorizing disability; historical and comparative perspectives; experiencing impairment and disability; professional and policy intervention in the lives of disabled people; disability politics, social policy and citizenship; and disability culture. This will be essential reading for those studying sociology, social policy, social work, health studies, disability studies, and those in the therapy and nursing professions.
