Following a brief review of disability practices during the 19th century, Winzer (Univ. of Lethbridge, Canada) devotes the bulk of this volume to a critical history of the trends and major events in special education in the 20th century. Winzer is the author of a comparative history of special education in the West, The History of Special Education (CR, Feb’94, 31-3350). Although anchored in the past, the book also provides insights related to contemporary issues and concerns in the field, including recent advances in genetics, the tension between special education assessment and differential mental health diagnostic evaluation, and inclusionary practices in the context of the current educational reform movement. The final chapter, focused on the inclusion movement, provides a detailed chronology of the events that have influenced practice in the recent past, as well as the philosophical, professional, and political underpinnings of those events. The book’s appendixes contain detailed chronologies of the major social, political, and legislative events in the history of special education. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate, research, and professional collections.
Margret A. Winzer is former Professor, Faculty of Education, University of Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.
