Description

Disability and Social Policy in Britain since 1750 explores experiences of physical and mental impairment in Britain since the Industrial Revolution. The book's starting point is the exclusion of disabled people from the full rights of citizenship because of their marginality to the labour market. Institutional living and community care are then examined with reference to the changing mixed economy of health and social care. Literary, oral and visual sources complement documentary evidence, and particular attention is paid to the personal testimonies of disabled people.
