Reviews

"In the companion volumes Foundations of Disability Studies and Emerging Perspectives on Disability Studies, editors Matthew Wappett and Katrina Arndt bring together a wide range of authors who trace the arc in disability theorizing that began 35 years ago in the US and UK with foundational texts like Bogdan and Taylor's Handicapism, Zola's Missing Pieces, UPIAS's Fundamental Principles of Disability, and other important contributions. The collections go on to explore disability theory from diverse vantage points from the foundational texts to the present rising generation of scholars who explore race and disability, space and disability, war/ideology/disability, historical methodology (i.e., archaeology), and gender. These books are timely in that they address embodiment, something the social and minority models of disability tend to overlook. A valuable contribution to the field." - Susan L. Gabel, Professor, Director of the PhD Program, College of Educational Studies, Chapman University, USA
