Inhaltsangabe: Part and parcel to the civil rights movements of the past thirty years has been a sustained, coordinated effort among disabled Americans to secure equal rights and equal access to that of non-disabled people. Beyond merely providing a history of this movement, Sharon Barnartt and Richard Scotch's Disability Protests: Contentious Politics, 1970-1999 offers an incisive, sociological analysis of thirty years of protests, organization, and legislative victories within the deaf and disabled populations. The authors begin with a thoughtful consideration of what constitutes "contentious" politics and what distinguishes a sustained social movement from isolated acts of protest. The numbers of disability rights protests are meticulously catalogued over the course of thirty years, revealing significant increases in both cross-disability actions as well as disability-specific actions. Political rancor within disability communities is addressed as well. Chapter four, "A Profile of Contentious Actions" confronts the thorny question of who is "deaf enough" or "disabled enough" to adequately represent their constituencies. Barnartt and Scotch conclude by giving special attention to the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and the 1988 Deaf President Now protest, focusing on how these landmark events affected their proponents. Disability Protests offers an entirely original sociological perspective on the emerging movement for deaf and disability rights.

Buchbeschreibung Gallaudet University Press, Washington, D. C., 2001. Pictorial Hordcover. Buchzustand: Fine. No Jacket. First Thus. "Protests from what statisticians call the 'unit of analysis' for most of the information reported in this book. The book focuses upon those actions within the deaf and disability communities that are non-normative. contentious political actions that occurred in the context of one or more social movements. It describes these actions, explores the roots of the actions, examines their progression, and suggests possible consequences of those social movement actions. Althbough we not explicitly contrast protests related to deafness or disability with protests in the civil rights and women's movements, those movements form a backdrop to the collective actions in the deaf and disability community. We will examine the linkages of those protests to those related to deafness and disability." This book has 272 pages and is illustrated. The text contains NO internal marks whatsoever.
