Editorial Reviews


"A trailhead that offers branches back into the many fields of study from which this book draws. It also suggests connections with new ones...[An] important, challenging, and often brilliant book." --American Literary History

"So much effort is put into trying to stop staring: mothers scold children, doctors try to 'fix' bodies marked 'abnormal.' But enough of that. Garland-Thomson takes staring as the inevitability it is, and, with compelling stories and beautiful insight, tells us where we could go from here-intellectually, socially, artistically, humanely. -Alice Dreger, Professor of Clinical Medical Humanities and Bioethics, Northwestern University

"'So I stared at him . . . I felt really ill-at-ease . . . .' Rosemarie Garland-Thomson's book explains that universal feeling in ways that are comprehensible to every one of us who has felt this discomfort at one time or another. Staring is a vital book for our understanding of disability and its impact on each of us. It is a bold and path-breaking book that should be on the reading list of everyone in education, public affairs, and social policy."-Sander L. Gilman, author of Making the Body Beautiful: A Cultural History of Aesthetic Surgery

"Staring: How We Look delivers on its promise to provide a comprehensive "anatomy
of staring"...Staring excels at offering a sustained analysis of how different bodies generate stares while those same bodies can transform understandings of variance." --Journal of Literary & Cultural Disability Studies

Excellent exploration of societal issues & individual differential expression. "Starers" and "starees" can share acceptance of differences only when we not just look, but to see the whole person.
