- DescriptionThis text is a critical and empirically-based introduction to disability studies. It offers a comprehensive, book-length analysis of disability through the lens of Science and Techlogy Studies (STS), and presents a practice-oriented discussion of how bodies, senses and things are linked in everyday life and configure enabling and disabling scenarios. Relevant to a broad spectrum of medical practitioners and practicing social service workers, the book will also be essential reading in the fields of disability studies, sociology of the body/senses, medical sociology and STS.
