Book

The new politics of disablement

Authors:
OLIVER Michael, BARNES Colin
Publisher:
Palgrave Macmillan
Publication year:
2012
Pagination:
192p.
Place of publication:
Basingstoke
Edition:
2nd ed.

The purpose of this second edition is to continue the process of developing a social theory of disability in response to a capitalist society faced with globalisation, financial instability and lower public expenditure. This process is located within the experience of disabled people and their attempts not only to redefine disability  but  also  to  construct  a  political  movement  with  the  potential  to contribute to the restructuring  of a more equitable and just society fit for all, regardless of the nature and severity of impairment, age, gender, race or sexual preference.  The book locates disability within the context  of  society  and  social  organisations  with  particular  emphasis  on  the working of the economy, politics and culture. Attention centres on the ways in  which  both  impairment  and  disability  are  ‘produced’  as  individual  and medical problems within capitalist society at both the national and international levels.
