Scapegoat : Why We Are Failing Disabled People, Paperback / softback Book

Scapegoat : Why We Are Failing Disabled People Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Every few months there's a shocking news story about the sustained, and often fatal, abuse of a disabled person.

It's easy to write off such cases as bullying that got out of hand, terrible criminal anomalies or regrettable failures of the care system, but in fact they point to a more uncomfortable and fundamental truth about how our society treats its most unequal citizens.

In Scapegoat, Katharine Quarmby looks behind the headlines to question and understand our discomfort with disabled people. Combining fascinating examples from history with tenacious investigation and powerful first person interviews, Scapegoat will change the way we think about disability - and about the changes we must make as a society to ensure that disabled people are seen as equal citizens, worthy of respect, not targets for taunting, torture and attack.
