Geographies of Disability explores how geography shapes the experiences of disabled peoples, examining the relationship between space and disability.

Drawing on case studies, historical sources and illustrative maps and photos, Brendan Gleeson presents the key

issues and concerns at the heart of disabled people and their social movements worldwide. The book presents critical theories of disability, space and embodiment, then places issues within an historical context, and discusses contemporary scenarios of disability, including the topics of

community care and accessibility regulation.

Geographies of Disability presents an important contribution to the key policy debates in Western societies, and offers new insights for broader contemporary discussions on embodiment and space.
