Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1998, Vol 43(4), 299-301. The reviewer states that this book (see record 1996-98480-000) provides an intriguing and provocative introduction to Deaf1 culture, and specialists in deafness-related professions will appreciate this volume for its broad coverage of sociocultural issues that impact the lives of Deaf children and adults. This book considers in depth the notion that Deaf people who use ASL as their first language and a written or oral form of English as their second language are members of a bilingual minority group. In conclusion, this book will be a valuable addition to the library of professionals who provide services to Deaf people. It will also be of considerable interest to researchers, instructors, and professionals in minority education and bilingualism. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
