Description: Who should qualify as disabled? The obese? Nonsympotomatic HIV-positive people?

In 1990 a landmark piece of legislation was passed by Congress. The Americans with Disabilities Act(ADA) was based on the idea that equal rights can solve social problems associated with disability. Few acts have sparked as much debate in recent years, with many employers and program providers protesting-and litigating-against the burdensome costs of the act. On the other side, many of the Americans with disabilities and their advocates claim that the ADA doesn't do enough, that only the most highly functioning disabled people benefit. Americans with Disabilities looks at the debate and sheds light on who is right.

In this groundbreaking work, leading philosophers, legal theorists, bioethicists, and policy makers offer incisive looks into the philosophical, and moreal foundations of disability law and policy.

A though-provoking analysis of one of the most controversial laws on the books, Americans with Disabilities provides a keen understanding of how much U.S. law does-and should-protect citizens with disabilities against intolerance and social limitation.
