Disability by Deborah Marks

Book Description

Deborah Marks examines current theories and practices relating to disability. The focus of the work is not disabled people as 'objects' of study but rather an analysis of disability as it has been historically and culturally constructed and psychically experienced. The chapters cover: * language and discourse * the disabled people's movement * the 'disability' professions * public policy * unconscious investments and interpersonal relationships * knowledge and the politics of disability. This text will be essential reading for students on the growing number of Disability Studies courses, as well as students, policy-makers and professionals in social policy, social work, cultural studies and nursing.
