"Staying Alive provides a fresh perspective on health, health care, and illness. Both professionals and general readers interested in sociology of health, health studies, nursing, and social policy will find this ground-breaking book to be a rich resource." "In addition to traditional health sciences and sociological approaches, the book provides human rights and political economy perspectives on health. It focuses on these issues in Canada and the United States within an international context. No existing book to date includes this range of perspectives. This unique contributed volume also contains chapters on issues of pharmaceutical policy, social exclusion, gender and care, the social construction of illness and disability, and approaches to promoting population health that include insights into the impact of economic forces such as globalization and privatization on health care and other health issues.

Critical perspectives on human rights and disability law by Marcia Rioux( )

19 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the changing relationship between disability and the law, addressing the intersection of human rights principles, human rights law, domestic law and the experience of people with disabilities. Drawn from the global experience of scholars and activists in a number of jurisdictions and legal systems, the core human rights principles of dignity, equality and inclusion and participation are analyzed within a framework of critical disability legal scholarship. This book breaks new ground in its consideration of the way in which human rights principles can be applied in law and policy to achieve positive outcomes for people with disabilities.--
Disability is not measles : new research paradigms in disability by Roeher Institute( Book )

8 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the product of a forum titled New Research Directions and Paradigms, held at the Congress of the International Association for the Scientific Study of Mental Deficiency in Australia in August 1992. The book presents 13 chapters, all written within a critical paradigm for disability research which critiques the reification of disability entrenched through a positivist theory of knowledge and focuses on the social, economic, political, and legal construction of disability. This paradigm sees disability as socially constructed rather than an inherent and fixed feature of a person and examines disability research questions through the lens of human rights and ethics. The following chapters are included: (1) "New Research Directions and Paradigms: Disability Is Not Measles" (Marcia H. Rioux); (2) "Intellectual Disability and the Heritage of Modernity" (John P. Radford); (3) "What Matters Most: Disability, Research and Empowerment" (Linda Ward and Margaret Flynn); (4) "Towards Inclusion: The Role of People with Disabilities in Policy and Research Issues in the United States--A Historical and Political Analysis" (Irving Kenneth Zola); (5) "Towards a Concept of Equality of Well-Being: Overcoming the Social and Legal Construction of Inequality" (Marcia H. Rioux); (6) "Voluntary Disabilities and Everyday Illnesses" (Jerome E. Bickenbach); (7) "Quality of Life: Questioning the Vantage Points for Research" (Michael Bach); (8) "Naming and Renaming Persons with Intellectual Disabilities" (Fred E. Stockholder); (9) "Knowing about Knowing: Margin Notes on Disability Research" (Aileen Wight Felske); (10) "The Social Semiotics of Disability" (Gary Woodill); (11) "Setting One Agenda for Empowering Persons with a Disadvantage within the Research Process" (Paul Ramcharan and Gordon Grant); (12) "Theoretical Framework for What Persons with Severe and Profound Multiple Intellectual Disabilities Do in Context" (John J. Gleason); and (13) "The Politics of Care-Giving" (Robyn Munford). Most chapters contain reference notes. (DB)

Inclusive education : emergent solutions : England, Germany, Croatia, Canada, India, Spain, Malta( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A worldwide revolution is occurring in education of learners experiencing disabilities. The Special Education model is being replaced by Inclusive Education, education all learners together in the regular classrooms of community schools. Inclusive Education is not simply a new way to educate students who differ in ability, hearing, vision, behaviour, or body. It is based in sweeping change of how we regard people experiencing disability and their right to full participation in society. As with all change, Inclusive Education is not welcomed by everyone. Some governments, educational administrators, teachers, and parents prefer the Special Education approach, which regards some learners experiencing disability as so different that they cannot learn in the company of their typical peers. Under this view, they must be separated for their own good. However, increasing numbers of people in every nation see and argue for the social justice of bringing all learners together in school. They understand that difference is a reason to be included. This book presents snapshots of the struggle of education change as seven nations respond to this new human rights understanding of how education and disability should intersect. In various ways and at different levels, each is experiencing the tension and excitement, which always accompany change

5 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In most countries, including Canada, people with mental handicaps must submit to the guidance of other persons or authorities before making important decisions such as to marry, vote, have children, enter into financial contracts, and live independently. There are many indications of how this differential treatment has come to be considered just and fair, and of how it is maintained. This document looks at two factors that have led to a generalized belief that the way people with mental handicaps are treated is fair and just
