Book DescriptionThis breakthrough book dares to name and explore a hidden blight in society: the routine, daily and oppressive treatment of people with disabilities. Drawing on a wide range of case studies from health and welfare, sport, biotechnology, deinstitutionalisation, political life, and the treatment of refugees, this thoughtful, lively and provocative work puts disability firmly on the agenda. A rare and timely audit, Disability in Australia: Exposing a social apartheid shows that disability iscentral to society, media and culture--a matter of human rights and justice that should concern us all.
