Buchanon American Historical ReviewVom Verlag:
In this absorbing story of the changing life of a community, the authors of "Deaf in America" reveal historical events and forces that have shaped the ways that Deaf people define themselves today. "Inside Deaf Culture" relates Deaf people's search for a voice of their own, and their proud self-discovery and self-description as a flourishing culture. In a moving conclusion, the authors describe their own very different pathways into the Deaf community, and reveal the confidence and anxiety of the people of this tenuous community as it faces the future.
