Disability, Politics and the Struggle for Change Paperback / softback

Edited by Len Barton


This book seeks to explore how disability is understood and the position and experiences of disabled people both within and across different societies.

The authors explore the question of politics in relation to specific struggles, providing a wealth of insights and ideas, and examine the nature and value of a social model of disability.

They criticize exclusionary barriers while advancing a more democratic and participatory society based on principles of equality, offer cross-cultural insights and present stimuli for debate and further research.

The text is accessible, topical, and provides new and innovatory thinking.

This book will appeal to undergraduate and postgraduate students, lecturers and researchers with interests in education, social policy, sociology and disability studies.
