A Partially Annotated Bibliography of Publications in the Field of Disability Studies for the Year 2000

Compiled by David Pfeiffer
Center on Disability Studies
University of Hawaii


This bibliography is only partially annotated because the volume of disability studies literature is becoming overwhelming. The increasingly larger number of publications each year is an indication of the progress of the field which is growing in breadth and depth as well as in number. These entries represent only a small part of the literature and are only a place to start.

I am very indebted to my colleagues in the field who gladly share publications in their areas of expertise. Without such sharing this bibliography and others would not be possible. A similar bibliography, but for the year 2001, will appear in the Spring 2003 issue of Disability Studies Quarterly. Yet another similar one, but for the year 2002, will appear in the Summer 2003 issue.

An examination of the meaning and the costs of caregiving to women in the US from the time before the Civil War to just prior to the US entry into World War II. One chapter discusses mothers caring for children labelled feebleminded and another the problems of raising children in conformity to the oralist principles.

An excellent analysis of the concepts of normal and abnormal as found in the biological sciences (and which form the foundation of the medical model of disability) showing that they are social judgments of what are acceptable biological variations which justify the disadvantages of people with disabilities.

Anderson, Elena M.; Fitch, Carol A.; McLendon, Patricia M.; Meyers, Allan R. (2000) Reliability and Validity of Disability Questions for US Census 2000. American Journal of Public Health, 90(8): 1297-99. Using a sample of 131 people with disabilities and their proxies (part of the sample from St. Louis and part from Massachusetts), the Census 2000 questions, the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, and the Activities of Daily Living instrument were compared for validity and the reliability of the proxies' answers. More impairments were reported by proxies than by people with disabilities and there was low agreement. The three sets of questions were moderately in agreement. An accurate profile of people with disabilities may not come out of the Census 2000.

Antonak, Richard F.; Livneh, Hanoch (2000) Measurement of Attitudes Towards Persons with Disabilities. Disability and Rehabilitation, 22(5): 211-24. A review of measurement instruments of attitudes toward people with disabilities. They discuss ten direct measures (people know that their attitudes are being measured) and fourteen indirect measures (people do not know). A problem with a direct measure is that knowing your attitudes are being measured can distort the attitudes. They conclude that "innovative experimental methods and psychometrically sound instruments that are reliable, valid, and multidimensional" (p. 211) are needed for research on important questions on inclusion of people with disabilities. However, the authors discuss methodology without directly naming the instruments used in the studies cited.

Bagenstos, Samuel R. (2000) Subordination, Stigma, and "Disability." Virginia Law Review, 86(3): 397-534. A review of the legal and disability studies literature on the definition of disability. It also presents a controversial argument on the interpretation of the ADA definition of disability.

Francis and A. Silvers; New York: Routledge Press, 283-92. The author discusses whether other disability related laws and programs conform to and are compatible with the Americans with Disabilities Act. He concludes that they are not and we must go beyond the Americans with Disabilities Act to achieve needed change in society. First, other disability programs must be brought into conformity with the Americans with Disabilities Act. As he demonstrates this is especially true of access to health care. Second, there must be some social intervention, although he rejects "extremely aggressive social policy," which will change people's negative attitudes toward persons with disabilities and will empower persons with disabilities. He presents some ideas about what can be done.

Good example of the late 19th, early 20th century intellectual who discriminated against people with disabilities.

Handley, Peter. (2000) Trouble in Paradise - A Disabled Person's Right to the Satisfaction of a Self-Defined Need: Some Conceptual and Practical Problems. Disability & Society, 15(2): 313-25. The author argues that a rights based approach to the problems of people with disabilities in the United Kingdom will not work. The Disability Discrimination Act of 1995 has the "experts" ascribing what the needs of the person with a disability are. Social model theorists say that it must be self- defined needs (the person with a disability is the best expert) which are sought. The author says that the social model theorists fail to understand that no one is autonomous and everyone has some of their needs defined by others. But the author is taking about human rights in the sense of moral and legal rights and not about equal protection and due process.

Imrie, Rob. (2000) Disabling Environments and the Geography of Access Policies and Practices. Disability & Society, 15(1): 5- 24. The author points out that the lives of people with disabilities are effected by where they live. He points to considerable published evidence that education policies and practices, housing resources, and accessible transportation vary from location to location. Therefore, he writes, geographic and/or spatial terms are important to researching and understanding the experience of disability.

Kitchen, Rob. (2000) The Researched Opinions on Research: Disabled People and Disability Research. Disability & Society, 15(1): 25-48. In his sample of 35 persons with a range of disabilities, the author found that they (like many academics with disabilities) wanted inclusive and action based research strategies which saw people with disabilities not just as subjects, but importantly as consultants and partners.

Kliewer, Christopher; Biklen, Douglas. (2000) Democratizing Disability Inquiry. Journal of Disability Policy Studies, 102): 186-206. In the context of increased demands by people with disabilities for their rights, the authors propose that participatory democracy prevail in disability research bringing in people with disabilities as major actors and they demonstrate how fruitful and necessary this change is by discussing research in facilitated communication.

Linton, Simi. (2000) Trans-Atlantic Commerce. Disability & Society, 15(4): 699-703. An invited comment about the complaint in Colin Barnes' Disability Studies: New or Not So New Directions (Disability & Society, 1999, 14: 577-80) that disability studies scholars in the US ignore the contributions of those in the UK and that in the US disability studies is impairment specific. Linton says that she and Barnes are evidently not reading the same works because US scholars do cite UK scholars and that maybe Barnes has been reading work in medicine and rehabilitation because US scholars' work is not impairment specific. Linton's piece is a good rejoinder to Barnes.

Llewellyn, A.; Hogan, K. (2000) The Use and Abuse of Models of Disability. Disability & Society, 15(1): 157-65. Focusing exclusively on the field of developmental psychology of children with physical disabilities the authors discuss the medical model, the social model, systems theory, and the transactional model. They make some good general points: models are neither true nor false, but rather are aids in clinical activities and in research.

Pfeiffer, David. (2000) The Disability Paradigm. Disability Policy: Issues and Implications for the New Millennium - A Report on the 21st Mary E. Switzer Memorial Seminar, Held September 1999 edited by L. Robert McConnell and Carl E. Hansen; Alexandria, VA: National Rehabilitation Association, 81-82. Rejecting the social constructionist and oppressed minority models, a paradigm must be adopted which says that disability exists when discrimination is encountered. Equal protection and due process is a remedy for discrimination. Disability policy today is largely a failure and seen as terribly expensive and not always the morally correct thing to do. Until professionals, providers, family members, and policy makers recognize that people with disabilities have the right to equal protection and due process and have the right to be a part of the process, disability policy will remain a failure. Nothing about us without us.
