About

Overview

This Encyclopedia represents the first attempt to bring an authoritative reference resource to the many faces of disability. Originally published in print format in 2005, it provides a fascinating entry into the world of disability where minds are expanded, prejudices shattered, and spirits raised. The experience of exploring the Encyclopedia answers the question: What is disability and why is it important in my life? An international editorial board of seventy-four editors from the Americas, Europe, Australia, India, Japan, and China, all experts in their own sub-fields of disability, developed these volumes. The result is a multi-disciplinary, cross-cultural, and historically grounded resource tool that guides the reader across fields, theories, debates, and practices.

Volumes 1 - 4 cover disability A to Z, including a Reader's Guide, comprehensive bibliography, and index and Volume 5 contains a wealth of primary source documents in the field of disability.

Features include:

  • Includes contributions from more than 500 world renowned scholars that have written over 1000 entries -- in a clear, accessible style -- with the desire to bring all students, researchers, and interested readers closer to the daily experience of disability
  • Provides written and Web site references to government documents and data that are rich resources to investigate how disability is measured and treated on an international level
  • Includes a timeline to place the concept of disability in a historical context

The Encyclopedia of Disability is a must-have reference for all academic libraries, large public libraries, and any social science, medical, legal, or governmental reference collections. Non-governmental organizations, charitable foundations, and law firms will also want to add this set to their collections.

This title is available in eBook format through Gale Virtual Reference Library.
