Introductory Comments on Down's Observations.
Ferguson, Philip
Mental Retardation, v33 n1 p54 Feb 1995
This commentary offers a rationale for reprinting an 1866 essay by J. L. H. Down (EC 610 641) in which Down's syndrome is delineated and a clinical description of "mongoloid idiocy" is provided. The article deplores the dehumanizing ideology that has changed its terms over the decades but has persisted in practices of marginalization and control. (JDD)
