An exemplar of the history of disability and an innovative work that pushes it in a new direction. -- Journal of Social History A concise yet thorough and accessible history of the deaf community, its schools, and its long struggle to maintain a cohesive community...sometimes against formidable odds. it shows quite clearly, sometimes inspiringly so, that deafness is not a curse. Using original sources, this unique book focuses on the Deaf community during the nineteenth century. Largely through schools for the deaf, deaf people began to develop a common language and a sense of community. A Place of Their Own brings the perspective of history to bear on the reality of deafness and provides fresh and important insight into the lives of deaf Americans.
