Written by Anne Darby George Taylor, this important title is a collection of inspiring and moving contributions from a wide range of Deaf people that reflect radically changing times. The rising level of awareness of the needs of Deaf people, and the discrimination and oppression they still face, is mirrored by the many changes within the Deaf community. Significantly, the rise in ‘mainstreaming’ of deaf children, cochlear implantation, political activity for rights and the recognition for BSL, all represent a considerable challenge to the static notion of deafness and deaf people’s cultural identity.
Deaf Identities is essential reading for all studying or interested in deaf issues, but it is also an enlightening and enjoyable read for anyone.
