Crimes against the Deaf: The Politics of Ableism.
Canadian Journal of Education, v22 n3 p330-35 Sum 1997
"Forbidden Signs" explores the debate between manualists and oralists in deaf education into political, pedagogical, scientific, philosophical, historical, racial, sexual, economic, and linguistic contexts. The biggest weakness of the book is that it is a history only of the attitudes of hearing people toward oralism and manualism. (SLD)
