Series description

Research in Social Science and Disability is devoted to the scholarly, social scientific analysis of significant issues in disability.

The multidisciplinary approach of the series permits contributors to explore the social origins of disability in society, and provides a basis for examining cross-cultural differences in approaches to disability, as well as the economic, social and psychological consequences for individuals, families and social institutions and organisations. The double blind peer reviewed series includes research framed by a variety of theoretical perspectives and research methodologies.
