Description

Founded in 1893, the National League of the Blind was the first nationwide self-represented group of visually impaired people in Britain.

This book explores its campaign to make the state solely responsible for providing training, employment and assistance for the visually impaired as a right, and its fight to abolish all charitable aid for them.
