Studying disability

Authors Elizabeth DePoy and Stephen French Gilson, both professors of social work and interdisciplinary disability studies at Ono Academic College in Israel, explore the history of disability in their book, Studying disability: Multiple theories and responses. This book begins by reviewing existing theories and examining how historical conceptions of disability have affected the lives and civil rights of people with disabilities. It concludes with a recommendation of a socially just community for everyone.
