A Personal Interpretation of the Mental Retardation Scene in Light of the "Signs of the Times."
Wolfensberger, Wolf
Mental Retardation, v32 n1 p19-33 Feb 1994
This paper examines the dangers of modernism and societal collapse to people with mental retardation and other vulnerable groups, including the dangers brought about by fewer well-functioning families, the medical system, and the human service sector. It emphasizes the growing incidence of "deathmaking" of societally devalued people, and concludes with some response measures. (JDD)
