MEDIA REVIEWS

'Michael Farrell's powerful and thought-provoking book presents a thorough examination of language related to special education, and the way we wield it. Readers will be challenged to confront their own language assumptions, beliefs, and biases which is essential for the progression of our profession. This is a must-read for all of us involved in special education.' - Desiree Gallimore, Guide Dogs NSW/ACT, RIDBC Renwick Centre, University of Newcastle, Australia.

'Michael Farrell, a well-known advocate of good special schools, applies the work of philosophers such as Foucault and Derrida to special education, with results that challenge our use of language. He writes convincingly about the power of language but also its limitations as an agent of change.' - Ann Sydney, education consultant, UK
