Thought-provoking essays on bioculture and disability 26 Jan. 2014
By Dan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Davis wrote an excellent and highly thought-provoking series of essays defining the concept of bioculture and it’s ramifications for disability studies and on disability itself. He casts a wide lens various topics from examining why nondisabled actors corner the market on portraying disabled characters on film and TV to depression to evolving Freudian concepts of gender and sexuality. It is a highly scholarly work which should be read not only by professionals but also the general reader as well. There are references to earlier work and the narative flows easily. Sometimes he may sound contrarian to prevailing viewpoints but the prevailing logic behind his arguments are always sound. Well worth the read!
Brilliant and thought-provoking. 26 Feb. 2014
By Gerald - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This series of essays is well-written, and clearly presents its points in well-reasoned arguments. Even if you disagree with some of the viewpoints, you are compelled to admit that the author has done his homework. For an academic work this book is engrossing and compelling.
