This innovative and adventurous work, now in paperback, uses broadly feminist and postmodernist modes of analysis to explore what motivates damaging attitudes and practices towards disability. The book argues for the significance of the psycho-social imaginary and suggests a way forward in disability's queering of normative paradigms.

MARGRIT SHILDRICK is Reader in Gender Studies at Queen's University, Belfast, UK and Adjunct Professor of the Critical Disability Studies program, York University, Toronto, Canada. She is the author of Leaky Bodies and Boundaries and Embodying the Monster, and co-editor of several books including Ethics of the Body.
