Summary
"Foucault and the Government of Disability is the first collection of essays to consider the relevance of Foucault to the phenomenon of disability, and the significance of disability studies to understanding and interpreting Foucault. This provocative international collection is a response to Foucault's call to question what is regarded as natural, inevitable, ethical, and liberating; hence, contributors draw on Foucault to scrutinize a range of widely endorsed practices and ideas surrounding disability, including rehabilitation, community care, impairment, normality and abnormality, inclusion, prevention, accommodation, and special education. The book presents a broad spectrum of approaches, disciplines, and perspectives, making this an important and distinctive addition to the burgeoning fields of disability studies and Foucault studies." - publisher's description
