'Rights not charity' is the slogan of many people now involved in direct civil disobedience, but what do they mean by rights? * How are society's attitudes responsible for their anger? * What does the community hinder disabled people from making their own life choices? * What are the political, social and, in particular, religious factors that need to be changed if disabled people are to be enabled to become full citizens? In this provocative book Ted Harrison examines the parallels between the current debate on disability issues and the earlier debates on racial equality and women's rights. He draws on the views of many disabled people and spotlights unthinking attitudes and beliefs in society which prevent millions of people with disabilities from living life to its full potential. He reviews current radical thinking about the meaning of disability and draws some original conclusions of his own.show more
