Review quote

an extremely valuable publication which certainly delivers a global perspective on Deafhood Sara Louise Wheeler, British Sociological Association this book is a good example of how sign language research and deaf empowerment can and should go hand in hand, and would have great value as a set text in sign linguistics and deaf studies classes.
