The third edition of Disability remains an indispensable tool for human service practitioners in understanding disability from an empowerment perspective. The authors address policy, theory, description, and practice, stressing the difference of disability rather than the dysfunction of
disability. The text is illustrated with in-depth personal narratives by those living with disability and thought-provoking sidebars that ask readers to consider the implications of their own reactions to disability.

Mackelprang and Salsgiver establish the historical and societal context in which those with disabilities are marginalized, discuss the major groupings of disabilities, and finally offer a model for assessment and practice that human service practitioners can adopt. The book develops a contemporary
perspective in which people with disabilities are considered valuable and contributing members of society. Using this book, students will find not only a prescription for professional assessment and practice, but also the necessary understanding of common issues those with disabilities face, the
social contexts in which they live, and the tools to work with people with disabilities as equals and partners.

Romel W. Mackelprang (DSW, MSW, University of Utah) is professor of social work and director of the Center for Disability Studies and Universal Access at Eastern Washington University. Active in disability rights since 1980, he continues to be involved in the independent living movement. He is committed to inclusive policies in which disability is considered integral to diversity in society. In recent years, he has expanded his disability rights work to several countries in East and West Africa. Richard O. Salsgiver (PhD, Carnegie-Mellon University) is professor emeritus of social work at California State University, Fresno. Born with cerebral palsy, he has dedicated his academic career to research and teaching concerning issues around disability and the American culture. His philosophy concerning disability comes out of the independent living movement, where he played a key role alongside leaders who included Judy Heumann, Ed Roberts, June Kailes, and Brenda Premo.
