More About the Author

I live in Ireland where I work in a research institute and am a regular media commentator on social and planning issues. I'm the author of four novels, the latest of which is STUMPED, and dozens of short stories. In addition to writing crime fiction, I'm the author or editor of 23 academic books and a 12 volume encyclopedia. I write for three blogs - 'The View from the Blue House' (about crime fiction), 'Ireland After NAMA' (about Ireland and the crisis) and 'The Programmable City' (about software, big data and smart cities).

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book really is great for students within disability studies and or geography of disabilities. It provides a clear introduction into disability and society. It looks at the various problems the built environment creates for people with disabilities by providing examples.

Each section has some questions realting to each part which is great for students.

What I felt was lacking was the range of disabilities that exist and therefore the problems that other disabilities face. Most of the book focuses on wheelchair users and sometimes people with sensory impairments. This is typical for a lot in disability which causes problems for other impairments (such as amputees and people with learning difficulties) as information regarding their needs is overlooked.
