Disability and the Sociological Imagination

First Edition


May 2022 | 352 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Disability and the Sociological Imagination is the first true undergraduate text for the relatively new and growing area of sociology of disability. Written by one of the field’s founders and leading researchers, it discusses the major theorists, research methods, and bodies of knowledge that represents sociology’s key contributions to our understanding of disability. Unlike other available texts, it examines the ways in which major social structures contribute to the production and reproduction of disability, and examines how race, class, gender, and sexual orientation shape the disability experience
