Americans with Disabilities Act
Americans with Disabilities Act The history of the United States is, in large part, the history of its Landmark Legislation.

Each book includes an informative "From Bill to Law" feature, which explains in easy-to-follow fashion how the process of legislation works. Americans with Disabilities Act tells the inspiring story of how people with disabilities-and their supporters-fought to win their civil rights and an equal opportunity to attain the American dream.
