About the Author:

Romel W. Mackelprang (DSW, MSW, University of Utah) is the director of the Center for Disability Studies and Universal Access at Eastern Washington University where he has been a social work professor since 1987. Active in disability rights since 1980, he continues to be involved in the independent living movement. He is committed to inclusive policies in which disability is considered integral to diversity in society.

Richard O. Salsgiver (PhD, Carnegie-Mellon University) teaches both Social Work and Rehabilitation at California State University, Fresno. Born with cerebral palsy, he has dedicated his academic career to research and teaching concerning issues around disability and the American culture. His philosophy concerning disability comes out of The Independent Living Movement where he played a key role along with leaders including Judy Heumann, Ed Roberts, June Kailes, and Brenda Premo.

Review:

The idea for the book is an excellent one. This is a comprehensive, important, impressive and much needed volume. It has assembled in a single source much of the information needed by human service practitioners working with people with disability. It also provides the practitioner with a sociopolitical perspective on disability that supports the identification of points of intervention and targets for change outside of the person with disabilities in ways that can significantly improve the quality of their lives. --Anonymous Review
