Foucault and the Government of Disability is the first collection of essays to consider the social theoretical positions associated with Foucault to endorse the practices and ideas about disability, including rehabilitation, community care, impairment, normality and abnormality, inclusion, prevention, accommodation, and special education. The book offers perspective in both disability studies and Foucault studies.
Mary Johnson's book, Make Them Go Away, from the Advocado Press, examines the case against disability rights. "Mary Johnson tells the tortuous, enraging story of how Congress enacted a law [Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)] that instead of protecting against discrimination has turned 'the disabled' into a political punching bag," says William Greider, national affairs correspondent for The Nation. The book "reveals the animus against disability underlying all those sweetly written op-ed pieces, and ... challenges us to oppose the mindset that puts the civil rights of all Americans at the mercy of the marketplace," says Douglas Lathrop in New Mobility. (Mary Johnson has covered the disability rights movement in the U.S. for over two decades as editor of The Disability Rag and Ragged Edge magazine.)
