This book explains how space, place and mobility have shaped the experiences of disabled people both in the past and in contemporary societies. The key features of this insightful study include:
* a critical appraisal of theories of disability and a new disability model
* case studies to explore how the transition to capitalism disadvantaged disabled people
* an exploration of the Western city and the policies of community care and accessibility regulation.

Brendan Gleeson presents an important contribution to the major policy debates on disability in Western societies and offers new considerations for the broader debates on embodiment and space within Geography.
