When the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 was first signed into law, there was immediate concerns. Critics were worried that the law was overly accommodating, and would allow people with minor disabilities to take advantages of the act unjustly. The book examines U.S. national disability policy within several contexts: research and statistics, efficacy of the law, education, health care, long term services and supports, youth, employment, welfare, transportation, housing, technology, international issues and homeland security. This wide range of issues gives critics and advocates of the nation's disability policy the tools to improve understanding of how the policy has affected the country.
