As a field, disability studies burst onto the scene across
the social sciences and humanities in the 1990s, and the
first edition of the reader gathered the best work that had
been written on the subject, including essays by famous
authors such as Susan Sontag and Erving Goffman. The new
edition is more global in its coverage and adds material on
genetic testing, the human genome, queer studies, and issues
in developing countries. The size of the audience has grown
since the first edition's publication, and the second
edition's new material will make it even more useful for
courses on the subject. Courses on the subject have
mushroomed in the past ten years, and can now be found
across the social sciences, humanities, and behavioral sciences.
