Overview
In this comprehensive and engrossing study, three distinguished scholars of Deaf cultureone hearing, one deaf, and one coda (child of deaf adults)offer clear, penetrating insights into the existence and makeup of the deaf world, the community whose natural languageAmerican Sign Language in the United Statesis manual and visual. Bringing the latest social and cultural findings and theories into sharp focus, the authors take us on a fascinating journey to discover what deaf culture is; the benefits of signed language and deaf culture for deaf children and hearing people; how deaf children are now educated and how they could be; how deaf people integrate into the larger society; the nature of American Sign Language; how technology helps (and hurts) deaf people; what can be learned from deaf societies in other lands; the future of the deaf world. Combining thought-provoking intellectual perspectives with enlightening first-hand accounts of life in the deaf world, this landmark volume is vital for professionals working in fields involving deaf people and for those with an interest in deaf studies."
