The Politics of Down Syndrome

by Kieron Smith - £9.99  John Hunt Publishing (Zero Books) (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781846946134 | ISBN 10: 1846946131

Are we a more accepting society than ever before? Is there no longer a them and us division between the disabled and everybody else?
 
The Politics of Down Syndrome looks at how we got to where we are today, from the racist roots of its identification to the rising number of abortions today. Down syndrome is the most common syndrome in the world, shared by all classes and races, yet it's one we rarely address our feelings about, head on.
 
This book, although direct and questioning, takes a positive view about where we go from here and the opportunity for society to fully enjoy the benefits of being inclusive.
