From Choice

This compilation of presentations from the 1989 Deaf Way international conference on deaf culture provides the most comprehensive international perspective on deaf culture to date. Although it is unfortunate that it has taken five years for this publication to appear, it is, in another sense, little short of a miraculous feat of translation and editing that such a volume should be printed at all, when one considers that the papers were translated into English from a wide array of signed and spoken languages. The works vary widely in content and style: some are quite anecdotal, whereas others follow a more traditional scientific format. Topics include an extensive section on deaf cultures around the world; deaf history; sign languages in society; diversity in the deaf community; family issues; educational issues; deaf/hearing interaction; deaf people and the arts; and human rights issues. The collection is distinguished by its true diversity of viewpoints from around the globe. Highly recommended as a resource for academic and public libraries, and for programs serving people who are deaf and their families. All levels.
