SPSSI's Contemporary Social Issues Book Series

Michelle R. Nario-Redmond, Ph.D, Hiram College

It is with great excitement that we announce the latest contribution to the SPSSI Contemporary Social Issues book series: Ableism: The Causes and Consequences of Disability Prejudice by Michelle Nario-Redmond, Ph.D.  Specializing in Disability Studies and the psychology of stereotyping and prejudice, Dr. Nario-Redmond has compiled convergent evidence of the many forms of prejudice disabled people face, along with the reasons that drive people to express their fears, curiosities, and good intentions in ways that perpetuate inequality and misunderstanding. Disentangling the roots of disability prejudice, this accessibly written volume describes specific strategies for combating distinct forms of ableism and the individual and coalitional approaches disabled people have used to resist discrimination and promote human rights. This book is an essential resource for organizations, student scholars, activists and allies dedicated to inclusion, equal opportunity, and the application and dissemination of research to advance social justice. Here is a link to the Table of Contents, and for a limited time, Wiley is offering a 20% discount reducing the price to $52.00.
