Most Helpful Customer Reviews

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By John Matlock on September 8, 2005
Format: Paperback
This is a very interesting book that explores the concept of diabled persons in performing roles in the theater, dance, art, music, and sports. Of these sports, in the form of special olympics has probably generated the most attention. But plays have been written that feature disabled people.

The late Christopher Reeve raised the bar, so to speak, with his public appearances where his speech was delivered with the help of artificial breathing apparatus.

The book is a serie of articles written by, I guess you would call them experimenters, working in these fields. Most of the writers are connected with universities but vary widely in their areas of study including: theater, sociology, women's studies, social anthropology, medicine, communications, English, and dance. Other writers are practicing musicians, playwrights, or poets.

This is a book that is breaking new ground in the area of disability studies.
