Description - Introducing Disability Studies by Ronald J. Berger

Ronald Berger provides students with a comprehensive, accessible introduction to the key themes and controversies in disability studies. This innovative textbook:
  • provides historical context, from ancient times to the present
  • traces disability's impact throughout the life course
  • gives prominence to the voices of people with disabilities
  • explores popular culture's role in distorting ideas about disability
  • addresses emerging ethical issues, such as the implications of genetic selection
Illustrating the profound consequences of differing conceptions of physical, sensory, and cognitive impairments, Berger provides a solid foundation for making sense of disability as a social phenomenon.
