Description

This casebook examines the development of disability rights law and policy in the United States and abroad and can be used as either a law or graduate school teaching tool. It gives a complete and current treatment of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the ADA Amendments Act, including the background of the statute’s passage, definition of disability, discrimination in employment, public services, and public accommodations. It also gives in-depth coverage of other important federal disability discrimination statutes like the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, Rehabilitation Act, and Fair Housing Amendments Act. This book is unique in that it offers extensive coverage of the rapidly developing area of international disability law, through discussion of the new UN Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities and related developments. The authors also offer detailed coverage of current policy issues involving taxation, health policy, and technology. The book has been streamlined significantly since the last edition.
