Summary note:
  • Most people with disabilities will experience some form of abuse during their lives. Studies constantly show that individuals with disabilities are significantly more likely to be physically or sexually abused than people without disabilities.
  • As people with disabilities are integrated into all aspects of community life, the prevalence of abuse and the potential for society's violent tendencies toward these individuals cannot be minimized. To better protect their rights and dignity, easy availability of information about violence and abuse is more essential than ever.
  • Now, this comprehensive reference, Violence and Disability: An Annotated Bibliography, provides professionals and advocates with an alphabetized, cross-referenced listing of literature pertinent to issues of disability, violence, and abuse.
  • Beginning with an illuminating introduction that reveals the history of abuse as well as progress achieved during the inclusion and self-advocacy movements, this extensive resource contains over 1,500 concisely written entries spanning a broad range of specialties and perspectives relevant to violence and abuse in the lives of people with disabilities.
