`This remarkable book is unlike any other I have reviewed, for a variety of reasons. Firstly, at 700 pages and with 34 chapters, the sheer scale of the collection is vast. The editors state that the book is not definitive, but represents a creative work in progress. However, the collection certainly provides a unique insight into the current debates and issues which frame disability studies, combining a variety of different backgrounds and a diverse range of experiences, and this manifests in the way that the chapters range across academic disciplines. Consequently, the book is aimed at a wide audience including disabled people, practitioners, academics and those involved in forming social welfare policies' - Medical Sociology News

'This text is truly a welcome reference book to any desk, library or organization where people are interested in this field or working with people with a disability' - Nursing & Residential Care

'This text is truly a welcome reference book to any desk, library or organization where people are interested in this field or working with people with a disability' - Nursing & Residential Care

The path-breaking Handbook of Disability Studies signals the emergence of a vital new area of scholarship, social policy and activism. Drawing on the insights of disability scholars around the world and the creative advice of an international editorial board, the book engages the reader in the critical issues and debates framing disability studies and places them in an historical and cultural context. Five years in the making, this one volume summarizes the ongoing discourse ranging across continents and traditional academic disciplines.

The Handbook answers the need expressed by the disability community for a thought provoking, interdisciplinary, international examination of the vibrant field of disability studies. The book is of interest to disabled people, scholars, policy makers and activists alike. The book defines the existing field, stimulates future debate, encourages respectful discourse between different interest groups and moves the field forward.
