Gary L. Albrecht “Encyclopedia of Disability( 5 volume set)"
Sage Publications, Inc | 2005-10-07 | ISBN: 0761925651 | 2500 pages | PDF | 56,1 Mb
This Encyclopedia represents the first attempt to bring an authoritative reference resource to the many faces of disability. It provides a fascinating entry into the world of disability where minds are expanded, prejudices shattered, and spirits raised. 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 multidisciplinary, cross-cultural, and historically grounded resource tool that guides the reader across fields, theories, debates, and practices.
Embraces five volumes that improve the reader’s understanding and appreciation of the world of disability: Volumes 1 - 4 cover disability A, including a Reader's Guide, comprehensive bibliography, and index, and Volume 5 contains a wealth of primary source documents in the field of disability
Includes contributions from more than 500 world-renowned scholars who have written over 1,000 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 print 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 chronology 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 collection.
