Although a bit dated I think Van Etten gives the reader a good insight into how dwarf's have make adjustments to their life in order to live in a world created for the average sized person. Van Etten shows both the social and spatial barriers dwarfs have to contend with on a daily bases, including people's attitudes and behaviours towards them. A good read for anyone interested in disability.

Dwarfs Don't Live in Doll Houses
In this book,is pure wisdom and great help! As I am petite and short in height,I had experience with stares and oglers in life.I just let it "fly over my head", and take it as education that many happen to be disrespectful of Individuality.The children of today must be educated for the real "path of the Future". As long as people have heart and Soul,then there is a chance to change the stereotypical "Norm" concept.Bravo and cheers for a wonderful, in-depth analysis!
