Paperback Writers

Four Classic Bestsellers Now Available in Softcover

The Press is happy to announce the reissue of four of its critically acclaimed books in new paperback formats. Multicultural Aspects of Sociolingusitics in Deaf Communities, the second volume in the Sociolinguistics in Deaf Communities series, offers studies on cultural variation in a host of international signing communities, including those in Indonesia, Venezuela, and the United States. Advances in Cognition, Education, and Deafness and The Handbook of Pediatric Audiology assemble the leading scholars of their fields to examine such topics as applying research to educational practice in the former and providing cochlear implants for children in the latter. Signing With Your Clients provides an easy-to-understand reference guide for clinicians to use with their deaf and hard-of-hearing clients. Although each of these titles has already made an indelible mark upon its respective discipline, the new editions ensure these timeless classics will continue to be read for years to come.

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.
