The Politics of Disablement: A Sociological Approach

Front Cover
Palgrave Macmillan, 1990 - Philosophy - 152 pages
2 Reviews

This work discusses whether the dominant perceptions of disability in industrial society, as an individual and as a medical problem, are universal. Using cross-cultural evidence, the author links the roots of individualization and medicalization to the rise of capitalism and considers alternative perceptions of disability and their implications for both political activity and social policy.
