MEDIA REVIEWS

"...what an extraordinary achievement this pioneering book is." - Social History of Medicine

"When Irina Metzler's book first came out in 2006, it was not immediately evident that it was one of those rare pioneering works that opens a whole field of study in a discipline. ... But Metzler performed important services for both medievalists and for scholars in Disability Studies. ... Metzler's book has opened an important conversation and provides, for those interested in the issue of disability in the Middle Ages, a welcome place to begin." - Leah Shopkow (Indiana University), The Medieval Review
