Disability and social change: Private lives and public policies

Sonali Shah


Combining critical policy analysis with biographical accounts, this book provides a socio-historical account of the changing treatment of disabled people in Britain from the 1940s to the present day. It asks whether life has really changed for disabled people and shows the value of using biographical methods in new and critical ways to examine social and historical change over time.

Keywords: policy analysis, biographical accounts, social change, historical change
