Product Details


“A powerful and engaging book. It’s a must read for anyone who wants to understand the disability rights movement.”The Disability Rag

“Having spent most of my life with children disabled in one way or another, I know that they become loved and loving adults who are both creative and innovative as they seek to find their deserved place in society. This book will give you understanding instead of the pity you always thought was expected of you.”—C. Everett Koop, M.D., former surgeon general of the United States

“Joseph Shapiro has crafted an interesting book from which everyone can benefit. For those wanting to understand the background against which the Americans with Disabilities Act was framed, this is an excellent primer. At the same time, seasoned veterans of this movement will find within a refreshing review of the personalities and activities of the Disabilities Civil Rights Movement. And for parents seeking a glimpse of possibilities for their child, this book cannot fail to inspire.”—I. King Jordan, president of Gallaudet University
No Pity is first-rate journalism. It will change the way Americans look at people with disabilities. Joe Shapiro’s humane reporting and understanding of the issue could not have come at a more appropriate and important time for the movement. No one who reads his book will fail to be struck by the rightness of this course.”—Senator Tom Harkin
