Abstract:

"Deaf around the World" is a compendium of work by scholars and activists
on the creation, context, and form of sign languages, and on the social
issues and civil rights of Deaf communities. Renowned contributors such as
James Woodward, Yerker Andersson, and Paddy Ladd offer new histories and
overviews of major topics. Each chapter is followed by a response from a
pre-eminent thinker in the field. The volume includes studies of sign
languages and Deaf communities in Australia, Brazil, Britain, China,
France, Germany, Ghana, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Myanmar,
Nicaragua, South Africa, Southeast Asia, Sweden, Thailand, and the United
States.
