"This analysis...is almost certain to become a classic work in the literature that will eventually emerge in this field."
"The best thing about Scotch's book is that it shows why, despite the broad rights language of the legislation and its regulations, Section 504 exists in a vacuum, with this country still, for the most part, unconcerned about disability rights.... Advocates should read Scotch's book... It's a good place to start on the future."
-The Disability Rag
"[P]resents the effects and disappointments associated with civil rights legislation including the ADA, and the continuing effort of the civil rights movement for persons with disabilities to secure access and integration into American society. From Good Will to Civil Rights (2nd ed.) is highly recommended for those seeking to understand the civil rights movement for persons with disabilities and the impact that legislation has on this new minority group."
-Journal of Social Work in Disability and Rehabilitation
"A particular strength of this work, aside from the analysis itself, is the author's reliance on the testimony of people involved in developing the policy [of Section 504]."
