Reviews

'Dan Goodley is one of the most original, opinionated, thoughtful writers in all of disability studies. I can't think of anyone better to introduce you to disability, and to explain why thinking about disability makes us better at thinking about humanity.' -- Tom Shakespeare
'This social theory text is quite a page-turner. In a skillful balancing act, it combines academic scholarship with vivid accounts of lived experience. Insightful, but also provocative, compassionate and witty in equal measure, Goodley's narrative engages productively with multiple interdisciplinary fields of critical theory, making for compelling reading as it goes. It positions disability as a process-oriented indicator of shared concerns and emergent trends in contemporary discussions about being human and becoming posthuman. Most of all, it argues for a relational ethics towards humans, nonhumans, animals and machines - a passionate call for community in these turbulent times.' -- Rosi Braidotti
