Synopsis

This book offers a groundbreaking exploration of disability in Germany, from the Weimar Republic to the fall of the Berlin Wall. ""Disability in Twentieth-Century German Culture"" reveals the contradictions of a nation renowned for its social services programs yet notorious for its history of compulsory sterilization and eugenic dogma. Covering the entire scope of Germany's most tragic and tumultuous century, this comprehensive volume reveals how central the notion of disability is to modern German cultural history. Carol Poore examines a wide range of literary and visual depictions of disability, focusing particular attention on disability and Nazi culture. Other topics explored include the exile community's response to disability, socialism and disability in East Germany, current bioethical debates, and the rise and gains of the disability rights movement. Richly illustrated, wide-ranging and accessible, ""Disability in Twentieth-Century Germany"" gives students, scholars, and all those interested in disability studies, Germans studies, visual culture, Nazi history, and bioethics the opportunity to explore controversial questions of individuality, normalcy, citizenship, and morality.

Carol Poore is Professor of German Studies at Brown University. She is also author of The Bonds of Labor: German Journeys to the Working World 1890-1900 and German-American Socialist Literature 1865-1900.
