The Policy Press has just published a new book: 'Disability and poverty' by Eide and Ingstat. I am sure that it will be of interest to members of the AAA Medical Anthropology Section and have included some more information on the title below.
This book is about being disabled and being poor and the social, cultural and political processes that link these two aspects of living. Environmental barriers, limited access to services and discriminatory attitudes and practice are among key elements that drive disabled people into poverty and keep them there. 'Disability and poverty' explores the lived realities of people with disabilities from across the developing world and examines how the coping strategies of individuals and families emerge in different contexts.
"This is an important and timely book. All too often we are told that there is a relationship between disability and poverty, but this is the first text which systematically examines this relationship, from a range of perspectives. The book will be required reading for everyone in the field." Leslie Swartz, Department of Psychology, Stellenbosch University
