Description

Roddy Slorach: A Very Capitalist Condition - A History and Politics of Disability

Roddy Slorach shows how capitalism creates disability by turning our minds and bodies into commodities to be priced and traded. Those who don’t fit are identified as a problem. This book examines the origins and development of disability, looking at disability movements in different parts of the world and the hidden history of groups such as disabled war veterans, deaf people and those in mental distress. It argues that Marxism helps provide an understanding of the politics and nature of disability and offers a vision of a better world for all.
