Описание: The first book to cover the entirety of disability history, from pre-1492 to the present " " By placing the experiences of people with disabilities at the center of the American story, "A Disability History of the United States" fundamentally reinterprets how we view our nation's past. Throughout the book Kim Nielsen illustrates how concepts of disability have deeply shaped the American experience--from deciding who was allowed to immigrate to establishing labor laws and justifying slavery and gender discrimination. The book abounds with compelling stories pulled from primary documents and social histories to retell American history through the eyes, words, and impressions of the people who lived it. Included are absorbing--at times horrific--narratives of blinded slaves being thrown overboard and women being involuntarily sterilized, as well as triumphant accounts of miners organizing strikes and disability rights activists marching on Washington. Engrossing and revelatory, "A Disability History of the United States" reconstructs our nation's story--from a narrow master narrative to a shared history that encompasses us all. As Kim Nielsen writes, disability is "our story, the story of someone we love, the story of whom we may become, and it is undoubtedly the story of our nation."
