Beginning with Disability : A Primer, Paperback / softback Book

Beginning with Disability : A Primer Paperback / softback

Edited by Lennard J. Davis



While there are many introductions to disability and disability studies, most presume an advanced academic knowledge of a range of subjects.

Beginning with Disability is the first introductory primer for disaibility studies aimed at first year students in two- and four-year colleges.

This volume of essays across disciplines-including education, sociology, communications, psychology, social sciences, and humanities-features accessible, readable, and relatively short chapters that do not require specialized knowledge. Lennard Davis, along with a team of consulting editors, has compiled a number of blogs, vlogs, and other videos to make the materials more relatable and vivid to students. "Subject to Debate" boxes spotlight short pro and con pieces on controversial subjects that can be debated in class or act as prompts for assignments.
