About this book


In the 1980s and 1990s our understanding of disability has matured and evolved. This wide-ranging collection of essays by Michael Oliver discusses recent and perennial issues - such as the fundamental principles of disability, citizenship and community care, social policy and welfare, education, rehabilitation, the politics of new social movements and the international context. Interwoven as these issues are with the personal biography of the author, they reflect some of the major concerns which confront disabled people, The book thus represents both a personal journey of exploration and an attempt to take further our theoretical understanding of disability.
