This is a personal account of what it is like to be deaf in a hearing world. The book discusses such issues as: mainstreaming and its effect on deaf children and the deaf community; total communication versus oralism; employment opportunities for deaf adults; and public policy toward deaf people. This edition includes an update of services by and for deaf people, and an expanded chapter on legislation and social issues that have had an impact on the deaf community in the last ten years.
