The Politics of Physical Differences: Disability and Discrimination.
Hahn, Harlan
Journal of Social Issues, v44 n1 p39-47 Spr 1988
Proposes a new conceptual framework, based on the fundamental values of personal appearance and individual autonomy, for assessing the "aesthetic" and "existential" anxiety aroused by persons with disabilities. Investigations using this perspective might contribute to determining the attitudinal foundations of the competing models that are dividing research on disability. (Author/BJV)
