"This volume tracks the changes in education and the social world of deaf people through the years. Topics covered include the attitudes toward the deaf in Europe and America, the evolution of communication and language and increasing influence of education. Of particular interest is the way in which deafness has been increasingly humanized, rather than medicalized or pathologized"--Provided by publisher.
