Book Description

Disability history exists outside of the institutions; healers; and treatments it often brings to mind. It is a history where disabled people live not just as patients or cure-seekers; but rather as people living differently in the world–and it is also a history that helps define the fundamental concepts of identity; community; citizenship; and normality.

The Oxford Handbook of Disability History (PDF) is the first volume of its kind to represent this history and its global scale; from British West Africa to ancient Greece. The 27 articles; written by 30 experts from across the field; capture the liveliness and diversity of this emerging scholarship. Whether discussing disability in modern Chinese cinema or on the American antebellum stage; this collection provides valuable and new insights into the rich and varied lives of disabled people across different places and times.
