The Fourth Edition of the Disability Studies Reader breaks new ground by emphasizing the global, transgender, homonational, and posthuman conceptions of disability. Including physical disabilities, but exploring issues around pain, mental disability, and invisible disabilities, this edition explores more varieties of bodily and mental experience. New histories of the legal, social, and cultural give a broader picture of disability than ever before.

I read a few of the essays in this for a paper. I didn't know much about disability studies before, but from what I read, it seems like a really interesting field to get into.

I had to read this book for a sociology class. The language in the articles gets wordy and "scholarly" at times, but the overall content is interesting. I enjoyed learning about the different social situations that differently-abled groups face and the cultures these groups have. Read full review
