More About The Other Side of Silence by Arden Neisser
 
 
 
Overview
A forceful, ardent portrayal of the deaf. -- Kirkus Reviews

An outstanding choice for public and academic libraries. -- Library Journal

Arden Neisser's classic on American Sign Language (ASL) is again available, with a new prologue. The Other Side of Silence chronicles the culture and issues of the Deaf community through telling interviews and research from across the country.

In widely varying encounters, Neisser heard Deaf individuals recall how teachers suppressed the use of ASL in the school, how linguists foster conflicting theories, and how various institutions diluted ASL to suit hearing patrons. This seminal book reveals the warmth, creativity, and resilience of Deaf people, and culminates in an update of the community today.
