Summary
  • Rates of autism diagnoses have reached what some consider to be epidemic numbers in some Western countries. Debates often rage about possible causes and treatments but few raise the more fundamental questions this book tackles. --
  • In this groundbreaking text, the authors discuss the science and politics that have contributed to the building of the concept of àutism' and conclude that the popularity of this label has developed through social and political concerns rather than through any scientific breakthroughs. They conclude that from a biological point of view at least there is no such thing as àutism'. --
  • Featuring remarkable accounts of what it is like to live with the àutism' label, this is essential reading for the public, professionals and students studying and working with autism and related disorders. --Book Jacket
