Reviews:

"This book is a welcome, refreshing and much needed global approach to Disability Studies. It is a fine illustration of the growth in the discipline over the past decade." - Nancy E. Hansen, PhD. Director of the Interdisciplinary Masters Program Disability Studies at the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg

"Johnson and Couture's Disability Discrimination at Work aims to help professionals better understand some of the challenges persons with disabilities face in employment. Experts contributed essays that address aspects of discrimination in a variety of employment settings or focus on positive ways that well-intentioned employers can be more accommodating of applicants and employees with disabilities. This book helps us understand why discrimination against persons with disabilities continues, the barriers qualifies persons with disabilities continue to face in securing and retaining appropriate employment, and what can be done about it." - Rodney L Lowman, PhD. Distinguished Professor, CSPP/Alliant International University; Editor, Consulting Psychology Journal: Practice and Research; President, Lowman & Richardson/Consulting Psychologists

"Disability Discrimination at Work is a collection of diverse and engaging essays that address employment discrimination against people with disabilities in settings ranging from universities and businesses in the United States and Canada to developing societies such as Zimbabwe and India. This anthology covers employment practices, policies, and law, but also includes a number of personal accounts of employment experiences of workers with disabilities; it would interest employees and job-seekers with disabilities, employers and employment counselors, advocates and policy-makers, and anyone concerned with confronting the workplace barriers faced by disabled people." - Richard K. Scotch, PhD. Professor of Sociology and Public Policy, University of Texas at Dallas
