Disability Studies Quarterly features a ringing endorsement of Robert Osgood's For "Children Who Vary from the Normal Type" in its Winter 2001 issue. "...well conceived, throughly researched, and clearly written," writes Martha L. Rose of Truman State University. "The greatest strength of the work is Osgood's command of the complex layers of historical context including the intertwined issues of eugenics, immigration, and mental testing. He is able to analyze, yet leave intact, the perspective of the mid-nineteenth through mid-twentieth century. ...Historians, education professionals, and scholars of Disability Studies will benefit from reading this fine historical study." Read the full review, and order For "Children Who Vary from the Normal Type".
The Winter 2001 issue of Disability Studies Quarterly also includes warm praise for editor Elizabeth Winston's Storytelling and Conversation: Discourse in Deaf Communities: "[T]he discussion of deaf people in Bali...may well be worth the price of the book," writes Amy Terstriep, from the Department of Anthropology at Albion College. "Storytelling and Conversation...will intrigue readers interested in anthropology, Deaf and Disability cultures, and education and policy issues." Read chapter one Talking About Space with Space: Describing Environments in ASL, and order Storyelling and Conversation.
