The Politics of Disablement: A Sociological Approach
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.

I recommend this book! I had to return it and haven't been able to get back to it to finish, but hope to in future. I think it would be a great book for an Inclusive Excellence discussion. Read full review
