Dancing Without Music: Deafness in America
More than a decade ago, Beryl Lieff Benderly wrote in Dancing Without Music about two burning issues of the Deaf community: oralism versus American Sign Language, and the rights of Deaf people. Now, her masterful book is available again. With scientific precision, Dancing Without Music investigates being deaf and its ramifications in society as well as the relationship between thought processes and language, whether spoken or not. The sage perspective it offers will engender fresh insights about matters changed and unchanged for Deaf persons today.
