This 1993 volume brings together critical analysis of the phenomenon called interpersonal expectation - a sub-area of social psychology that studies how the expectations of one person affects the behavior of another in an interactive setting. The book is divided into three major sections: the first examines real-world applications of research on interpersonal expectations, such as in the courtroom, classroom, and operating room; the second considers the mediation of interpersonal expectations through verbal and nonverbal behavior; and the third outlines the emerging methodological and statistical techniques for understanding the implications of interpersonal expectations. Critical commentary and analysis by leading scholars in the field are presented and the book makes a major contribution to the study of interpersonal expectation

Race, ethnicity, and disability : veterans and benefits in post-Civil War America by Larry M Logue( Book )
5 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 175 libraries worldwide
"Using data from more than 40,000 soldiers of the Union army, this book focuses on the experience of African Americans and immigrants with disabilities, investigating their decision to seek government assistance and their resulting treatment. Pension administrators treated these ex-soldiers differently from native-born whites, but the discrimination was far from seamless - biased evaluations of worthiness intensified in response to administrators' workload and nativists' late-nineteenth-century campaigns. This book finds a remarkable interplay of social concepts, historical context, bureaucratic expediency, and individual initiative. Examining how African Americans and immigrants weighed their circumstances in deciding when to request a pension, employ a pension attorney, or if seek institutionalization, it contends that these veterans quietly asserted their right to benefits. Shedding new light on the long history of challenges faced by veterans with disabilities, the book underscores the persistence of these challenges in spite of the recent revolution in disability rights"--Provided by publisher

People with disabilities : sidelined or mainstreamed? by Lisa Schur( Book )
9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 125 libraries worldwide
To what extent are people with disabilities fully included in economic, political and social life? People with disabilities have faced a long history of exclusion, stigma and discrimination, but have made impressive gains in the past several decades. These gains include the passage of major civil rights legislation and the adoption of the 2006 UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. This book provides an overview of the progress and continuing disparities faced by people with disabilities around the world, reviewing hundreds of studies and presenting new evidence from analysis of surveys and interviews with disability leaders. It shows the connections among economic, political and social inclusion, and how the experience of disability can vary by gender, race and ethnicity. It uses a multidisciplinary approach, drawing on theoretical models and research in economics, political science, psychology, disability studies, law and sociology

11 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 123 libraries worldwide
"The Struggle for Web Accessibility by Persons with Cognitive Disabilities Never before have the civil rights of people with disabilities aligned so well with developments in information and communication technology. The center of the technology revolution is the Internet's World Wide Web, which fosters unprecedented opportunities for engagement in democratic society. The Americans with Disabilities Act likewise is helping to ensure equal participation in society by people with disabilities. Globally, the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities further affirms that persons with disabilities are entitled to the full and equal enjoyment of fundamental personal freedoms. This book is about the lived struggle for disability rights, with a focus on web eQuality for people with cognitive disabilities, such as those with intellectual disabilities, autism, and print-related disabilities. The principles derived from the right to the web - freedom of speech and individual dignity - are bound to lead towards full and meaningful involvement in society for persons with cognitive and other disabilities"--

Genetic discrimination : transatlantic perspectives on the case for a European-level legal response by G Quinn( Book )
8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 67 libraries worldwide
"The science and technology of genetic testing is rapidly advancing with the consequences that genetic testing may well offer the prospect of being able to detect the onset of future disabilities. Some recent research also indicates that certain behavioural profiles may have a strong genetic basis, such as the determination to succeed and win or the propensity for risk-taking, which may be of interest to third parties. However, as this technology becomes more prevalent there is a danger that the genetic information may be misused by entities such as employers, insurance companies, educational facilities, and finance companies and that people with particular genetic profiles may be discriminated against.This book explores the different types and the potential uses of genetic testing. The book highlights the ethical and legal dilemmas and the challenges arising as a result of emerging and rapidly advancing genetic science. Chapters in the book assess the importance and impact of the US Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act (GINA) in the employment and health insurance contexts asking whether it is proving to be an effective tool in addressing the issue of genetic discrimination and alleviating individuals' fears of discrimination. The book then goes on to make the case for regulation at the European Union level in order to protect the privacy of genetic information and to prevent the discriminatory use of genetic information in Europe. It considers what can be learnt from the experience of the US in addressing ethical and legal issues as well as the impact that the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is having on this debate within the EU"--

Communicating the Americans with Disabilities Act : transcending compliance: a case report on Sears, Roebuck and Co. by Peter David Blanck( Book )
3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 33 libraries worldwide
This report examines the employment practices of Sears, Roebuck and Company, before and after the implementation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ada). By studying the corporate behavior of Sears, which employs an estimated 20,000 people with disabilities, the report attempts to stimulate discussion of the communication issues that Sears and other companies face regarding ada implementation and identify the implications of Sears' ADA-related experiences, policies, and philosophy for other companies as they attempt to meet and transcend ada compliance. The following implications are drawn from Sears' experiences: (1) the impact of the ada on American business is evolutionary, not revolutionary; (2) universal design and access, not retrofitted technology, fulfill the objective of including people with and without disabilities in productive work force participation; (3) education of management about the ada and capabilities of people with disabilities must not be based on paternalism or myths; (4) companies can look beyond compliance to transcendence by fostering independence and providing meaningful career opportunities; and (5) the ada can provide a framework for dispute avoidance and resolution. Special features in the report describe information technology needs and placement of individuals with visual impairments and hidden disabilities. Appendices offer statistical data on the Sears workforce with disabilities and a list of employment and information technology resources. (Jdd)
