A Very Capitalist ConditionWhat does “disability” mean today? For many it is a negative term that they do not accept, associated with unemployment and dependence. But how were people we now call disabled treated in earlier societies? And how can people with disabilities help make a better world for all?


“Whether you are new to the issues or have been around disability politics for a while, this book is essential reading… It offers knowledge, hope, and a solid foundation for generations of disability activists and writers to come.” Debbie Jolly, co-founder of DPAC (Disabled People Against Cuts)
