Milton, Damian (2016) Book review: Re-Thinking Autism: Diagnosis, Identity and Equality. Review of: Re-Thinking Autism: Diagnosis, Identity and Equality by UNSPECIFIED. Disability & Society, 31 (10). pp. 1413-1415. ISSN 0968-7599. E-ISSN 1360-0508. (doi:10.1080/09687599.2016.1221666)

Abstract

Re-Thinking Autism: Diagnosis, Identity and Equality seeks to contribute to the growing field of critical autism studies and, according to one commentator quoted on the back cover, inaugurates this area of study – a bold and yet inaccurate statement, given previous texts and events that have sought to explore this area (for example, Arnold 2012 Arnold, L. 2012; Davidson and Orsini 2013 Davidson, J., and M. Orsini, eds. 2013; Greenstein 2014 Greenstein, A. 2014).
