Approaches to Needed Sociological Research on the Physically Handicapped.
Davis, F. James; Heyl, Barbara Sherman
The authors consider the possibilities for sociological rehabilitation research in three areas: deviance, minority-dominant relations, and law and politics. Among the areas investigated by medical sociologists are the stigma of disability, discrimination against the physically handicapped as compared to discrimination against minority groups, and the effect of legislation on social change.
