The Special Collections Book of the Week this week is:
Nothing about us without us: Inside the disability rights movement of South Africa by William Rowland.
This book is an inspirational work written by an authentically inspiring author. Only someone who is at the same time a leader, a disabled person and a truly committed person could have produced a work of this import. The book offers something of everything: it is an insider’s tale, a human tale, a tale of triumph over adversity, a tale told by an experienced expert and a tale of triumph of the human spirit. Above all a readable, accessible book that should appeal to a wide variety of book lovers.
