This provocative and groundbreaking book is the first of its kind to propose the concept of Eco-ability: the intersectionality of the ecological world, persons with disabilities, and nonhuman animals. Rooted in disability studies and rights, environmentalism, and animal advocacy, this book calls for a social justice theory and movement that dismantles constructed "normalcy", ableism, speciesism, and ecological destruction while promoting mutual interdependence, collaboration, respect for difference, and inclusivity of our world. Eco-ability provides a positive, liberating, and empowering philosophy for educators and activists alike.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"`Earth, Animal, and Disability Liberation' is one of the most liberating books of our time, one that truly levels the playing field, by examining with unflinching honesty and clarity the ideas of normalcy and speciesism that continue to justify the enslavement and torture of millions." (Corey Lewis, Professor of English, Humboldt State University)
"This ground-breaking book offers its fortunate readers a unique and crucial set of lenses into the worlds of ecological activism, disability rights, and anti-imperialist struggles. Importantly, these lenses are not limited to the visual field. The contributors and editors assert effectively that these worlds are not actually disparate in the first place, and that any attempts to separate them from each other results in the risk of grave danger, if not peril. The volume goes well beyond sharing helpful conversations about interdependence and intersectionality with regard to fighting oppression and striving for social justice; it demonstrates that advocacy for the survival of our planet and all of `its' species is a mutually imbricating series of committed efforts - and labors of love. The continuance of vitality and diversity requires an understanding of this book's numerous, life-affirming linkages." (Dr. Diane R. Wiener, Director of the Syracuse University Disability Cultural Center)
