This landmark collection arises from the forum Disability and Economy: Creating a Society for All hosted by Research on Economy and Disability (READ), the University of Tokyo (Todai), in association with Manchester Metropolitan University. This volume continues the international and interdisciplinary direction of disability studies by bringing together contributions from Japanese and British scholars -- both established figures and newcomers to the field -- to further the links between disability studies and economics.

Creating a Society for All: Disability and Economy will be essential reading for students, scholars and disability activists with an interest in the relationship between disability and the economy, and the creation of a more equitably and just global economy.

The book is also available at no extra cost on CD, in PDF format, for ease of access for people who require information in alternate formats.

£19.99 including postage and packing (20% discount for orders of four or more)
