Obesity. Heart disease. Vision problems. Asthma. AIDS. Depression. Those maimed by land mines, machetes, bullets, bombs and beatings. These are just a few examples of how disability is becoming an increasingly common experience in our daily lives. Regardless of who we are or where we live, disability is with us. SAGE Reference is proud to announce the five volume Encyclopedia of Disability. This Encyclopedia represents the first attempt to bring an authoritative reference resource to the many faces of disability. It provides a fascinating entry into the world of disability where minds are expanded, prejudices shattered, and spirits raised. The Encyclopedia answers the question: What is disability and why is it important in my life? An international editorial board of seventy four editors from the Americas, Europe, Australia, India, Japan, and China, all experts in their own sub fields of disability, developed these volumes. The result is a multidisciplinary, cross cultural, and historically grounded resource tool that guides the reader across fields, theories, debates, and practices.
