Disability Employment Awareness Month: Book Spotlight

With this month's focus on disability employment, it would be fitting to examine the history of disability rights in the United States and abroad. Rights Enabled focuses on the shifting views of disability from a medical or physical issue to a social oppression issue. Chapters cover the disability revolution and the passage of the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act), and then explores how Germany and Japan subsequently dealt with issues of disability. The book ends with a discussion on how to further globalize the view of disability rights as human rights.

You can find this eBook and many more in the UNT Dallas Library Catalog.
