Bill F.: Signs of the Times Read from the Life of One Mentally Retarded Man.
Wolfensberger, Wolf
Mental Retardation, v27 n6 p369-73 Dec 1989
This account of the life of a mentally retarded man describes his early institutionalized years, his failure to retain employment, and the impact of uncontrolled diabetes on his health. The man's death is attributed to his societal devaluation and to failure of the human services field to engage in "life-sharing." (JDD)
