1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Daniel J. Henry am 16. Dezember 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
Four years ago this book was part of a class taught by James McLeskey that changed my life. Because this book is so well written, and because it time after time moved me into zones of cognitive dissonance about what I knew and about what I believed, it had the effect of making me incredibly uncomfortable about my own unrecognized prejuidaces concerning folks with disabilities. As Shapiro says, it is the only minority group which we can join at any time, and the older we live, the more likely we are to acquire disabilities. I currently teach classes about inclusion of students with special needs in general education classrooms, and this book has received rave reviews from many students and made many others angry. As a teacher hoping to open space for questioning, that's exactly what I want in a book.

Von K. L Sadler am 7. November 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
As a deaf person and an educator, I find myself very involved whether I like it or not in being an activist. I was taking a law class on disability law, and the second footnote in the required text was on this book. That intrigued me, and when I read the reviews about the book, I was even more intrigued. This book is a must-read for anyone who might or does work with the disabled. We no longer want the pity, the institutions, and the exclusion from society. We want to be viewed as normal except with one part or a few parts that may not function as some would consider normal. We want an equal education, equal opportunity to jobs, equal opportunities to participate in society. And everyone will be the better for it. Mr Shapiro as a non-disabled person, wrote a book that was compassionate but strived hard to see things from our point of view. This ability probably stands him in good stead as a journalist. He even taught me things I didn't know about other disabilities. Educators, lawyers, politicians, parents, social workers, and health care professionals need to get off their duff and read this book. They can no longer turn a blind eye or claim ignorance as an excuse to not allowing those of us with differences our rights under the law.

I read No Pity when it was first released..No Pity is American as apple pie. The disability related material was well presented in terms of individual stories and examples of predjudice, struggle etc.. I found the analysis of the disability movement and the use of the African-American civil rights struggle for equality as a parallell struggle with which to compare the struggle by the disabled was handled without real exploration into the implication of that comparison. Basically I was annoyed by the lack of qualifiers regarding how the movements were so radically different and also how minorities are not really that visible in the disabled activist movement as a whole. For a better worded deeper insight into this common mistake by white (my assumption) authors regarding using the African presence to make a point read Toni Morrisons "Playing in the Dark". Note Morrison's own oversight of issues relating to how disability is used by authors to qualify their characters nature. In closing I suggest to read No Pity its ok.. check out how it employs the African American struggle when convenient but the fails to dig deeper. Thats its flaw. Peace.. One Love.

Von Ein Kunde am 2. Oktober 1998
Format: Taschenbuch
This book changed my view of the world, of people with disabilites, and of people in general. Everything I thought I knew about disabilities went right out the window. Not only is it a real eye-opener, it's also a fantastic read -- interesting, funny, heart-breaking, rivitting, inspiring, earth-shattering -- everything you would want out of a good book. Everyone should read this book -- and then give it to all their friends to read (I have).

A must-read for everybody 7. November 1999

Response to Cindy Heilman 28. Dezember 2003
Von Lisa Ferris - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
In regards to the review by Cindy Heilman below, it is apparent that you missed a major point of this book. When you state that "Neither the disabled, homosexuals, nor adoptees are the target of lynching, Jim Crow laws, fire engine hosing, or vicious police dogs."
You must have missed the disability history about Nazi death camps, false imprisonments in institutions, forced sterilization, abuse by caregivers, death by neglect, murder of those with mental disabilities thought to be under demonic controls, murder of disabled children in underdeveloped countries, the list goes on and on. I'm not an expert on the experiences of gays and adoptees, but as far as gays...it seems they face some of the most violent crimes that helped institute hate crime statutes. The history of African-Americans has been tragic and an embarrassment for our country, but they are certainly not alone in facing hatred and violent discrimination.
As for your statement regarding the difference in abilities justifies unequal treatment, you are missing the point that we all have differing abilities and must find ways to use our assets to contribute to society and accommodate our weaknesses. This holds true for any college student who has picked a major that accommodates their strengths while downplaying their weaknesses or any member of any sports team who picks the position that will give the team the best advantage. Disabled people are not asking for unfair advantages, they are asking for equal access. A level playing field. The same opportunities to build on their strengths and contribute to the society that has blocked them out. Even under horrendous Jim Crow Laws, African-Americans were sometimes allowed to go into the back of a restuarant and be served. People with disabilities aren't even allowed to the resturant door sometimes. Although their is a uniqueness to some of the issues surrounding disability, the civil rights aspect of amicus and access are exactly the same.
Read "Make them go away" by Mary Johnson for a more straightforward, updated essay on this situation if you still don't understand.

The most influential book you could ever read. 24. November 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
My perception has changed in ways immeasurable in regards to people with disabilities. Now, every single day I am aware of the small and large ways in which those with disabilities are discrimated against by temporarily able-bodied individuals. I am buying several copies to lend and give out, I hope others do the same.

Essential Reading for ALL "Tinytimisms" 15. November 2006
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The Essential Primer from a non-disabled person's view. The 1994 book covers history, policies, and the interdependence we have together.

Judy Heumann and Evan Kemp recommended this to me in 1990's, and my eyes were opened wide after I read it. Ch. 1 and Tinytimism (as I call it)applies to many groups. Some call it 'Uncle Tom','assimilationist', or other. 'No Pity' describes why the charity model is fatalistic and damaging. You can see this played out in the Congress about 'welfare', 'healthcare', Clint Eastwood's attack on the ADA, and 'special needs'.

Sorry folks - we just want what you think we have, but we don't really have it: civil, legal, accessible, culturally affirming human rights.

Even if you have a disability, it is vital to read the sections that you think you know- and definately read the ones you don't know. Anyone working in health care, Addiction, Mental Health, VA, CILS, advocacy for any disability related group should read this first.

My only regret was I didn't read it sooner.

Access is a civil right and an attitude, not just a ramp (TM)!
