    The Mask of Benevolence: Disabling the Deaf Community

    First published in 1992, now hailed as a classic, The Mask of Benevolencetakes an unflinching look at the gulf that separates the Deaf minority from the hearing world— a world that regards deafness as a deviance that must be fixed at all costs. 

    This new edition has a new preface and new chapter on the science and ethics of cochlear implants. An award-winning book when first published, this updated version is still startlingly fresh and relevant.

    “...should be required reading for all professionals working with the deaf, as well as the families, loved ones, and colleagues of the deaf.”—The Bookwatch, July 1999
