Title: Politics, disability and social inclusion: People with different abilities in the 21st century
Authors: Gibilisco, Peter
Tudzi, Eric Paul
Issue Date: 2014
Publisher: African Review of Economics and Finance
Citation: African Review of Economics and Finance Vol. 6, No. 2, December 2014 pp. 153–156
Abstract: Policy makers cannot help but be touched to reconsider their policies for persons with disabilities (different abilities) as they read this book. They will literally be walking side by side with Dr Gibilisco as he recounts the story of his life to make his voice heard for social inclusion. His style of providing personal narratives, interviews and analysis, interspersed with aspects of his autobiography, vividly and forcefully brings out the issues at stake and promotes the objective to inspire empathy. Although the contexts may be different, the 168-page book clearly echoes the lyric of Bunny Wailer’s song ‘who feels it, knows it’. The book is recommended for every serious student of political economy and every policy maker who seeks to practically demonstrate a concern for persons with disabilities, and desires far reaching social policies that will promote social inclusion.
