A Disability History of the United States by Kim E. Nielsen


The primary book to duvet the entirety of disability historical past, from pre-1492 to the present
Via inserting the experiences of individuals with disabilities at the center of the American story, A Disability History of the USA fundamentally reinterprets how we view our nation’s earlier. All over the e-book Kim Nielsen illustrates how concepts of disability have deeply shaped the American experience—from finding out who used to be allowed to immigrate to setting up labor regulations and justifying slavery and gender discrimination. The e-book abounds with compelling stories pulled from major paperwork and social histories to retell American history throughout the eyes, phrases, and impressions of the people who lived it. Incorporated are absorbing—from time to time horrific—narratives of blinded slaves being thrown overboard and ladies being involuntarily sterilized, as well as successful debts of miners organizing strikes and incapacity rights activists marching on Washington.
Engrossing and revelatory, A Disability Historical past of the United States reconstructs our nation’s story—from a narrow grasp narrative to a shared history that encompasses us all. As Kim Nielsen writes, disability is “our story, the story of any individual we like, the story of whom we may become, and it is undoubtedly the story of our nation.”
