Empathetic identification with disability

Rukmini Krishnaswamy

Abstract

Disability is a subject arousing much professional interest, research effort and analysis, and is the focus of expert perspectives yielding documentation and literature from scholars, policy makers, people with active engagement in the subject, and “subjects” with a vast variety of disabilities. This book is a remarkable effort to string together contemporary research in India, the conditions of disability on a vast canvas of gender, class, caste, and locational disability (eg rural/urban), and their effect on policies, health issues, culture and family. It is a unique document in terms of content, style, relevance and analytical quality.
