NO PITY: People with Disabilities Forging a New Civil Rights Movement
by Joseph P. Shapiro Author
Award-winning investigative journalist, congressional reporter and social policies writer Joseph P. Shapiro centers his empathetic review of our society's relations to its disabled population on the 1992 passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act, documenting the political progress of the issue with stories about several of the nation's estimated 35 million disabled people. People with disabilities still struggle to be accepted on equal, independent terms without being patronized, segregated, or victimized in an antiquated social services system and a prejudiced society and are forging the newest human rights movement of the last century.
