Cicso Independent A Place of Their Own
Using original sources; this unique text focuses on the American Deaf community during the 19th century. It traces the history of Deaf people in America not from the perspective of pathology; but of culture as the distinguishing characteristic of a distinct community of individuals whose history and achievements are worthy of study. Largely through schools for the Deaf; Deaf people began to develop a common language and a sense of community. A Place of Their Own brings the perspective of history to bear on the reality of deafness and provides fresh and important insights into the lives of Deaf Americans.
