''Impassioned, polemical, at times even virulent, the author shows immense scholarship, powers of historical reconstruction, & deep empathy for the world of the deaf.'' ''The unimaginable world of those who have been born deaf is made almost imaginable by Lane s account of their history.'' ''The author' s passion & directness are delivered through the mouth of one of his subjects, himself deaf, who became an intellectual leader of the deaf community in France & then in America. The story he tells is extraordinary & is perhaps the best illustration of what it means to see the condition & the patient as a whole.''

Thus far this book is just what I was looking for. Stories by original founders of the Deaf Schools in America that take you back to one man's story of his educational back round in France. Well written. Descriptive writing that allows you to be in the story of a boy growing up in a residential school for the Deaf back in the 1800s. This book is very engaging especially if you are looking for real stories of stigmas a Deaf child lives with and the joy of being able to understand that he, like anyone else, could learn to communicate. The Mind awakens to a practical sense through which to understand the world allowing him to be a part of it. I look forward to getting further into the book but it is wonderful absorbing it slowly too. I definitely recommend it for anyone who wishes to listen to the minds of the Deaf and through it become a part of the bridge between the Hearing population and the Deaf. To quote one sentence that impacted me, "There is NOTHING wrong with being Deaf but there is everything wrong with NOT being able to communicate." Written by the famous Deaf Stand Up Comedian, Kathy Buckley in her book "If You Could Hear what I See."

Renown deaf advocate Lane injects himself as Laurent Clerc to write the history of deaf work in America, which began in France.

Briefly this review will attempt to broadbrush some of the consistent historical strokes with which Lane's account through Clerc paints. First, from the outset the seemingly natural language of this minority language group (deaf) appears to be manually with sign, mime and fingerspelling. It is also apparent that there were initially Christian, religious inspiration and motivation for equipping the deaf for the power of words, thoughts and thinking processes. Of this, I am personally interested and indebted to its inclusion without apparent editing. Further, wonder if this has anything at all to do with subsequent intrusion of oral method, which seemingly also has removed much of religious instruction from sign language? This oralist movement fueled by likes of telephone inventor Bell has an unmoral edge to it (if this historical record is anywhere indicative of truth) of not caring at all about the deaf as human, but more substandard, without much respect for their humanity at all.)

What develops from these is the developments which drop this history off at our chronological doorstep. One might also check out the fascinating book by Winefield "Never the Twain Shall Meet: Debate between Galladet and Bell".

This book will certainly give great historical precedent to this continuing and complex debate for the hearing outsider such as myself, providing much to ponder and investigate. Primarily, will seek out the deaf to listen to their perspective. That is the great value of reading this book. We must listen to their viewpoint and give it weight.

I am still having this read to me and I am 100% recommend this authors work. There is so much to learn about Deaf community. I also recommend Nancy Frishberg's work "Interpreting: An Introduction" all the books from the Registry of Interpreters...

Fast, great condition, and love!

Fascinating information. A must-read for anyone interested in ASL and Deaf Culture.
Spilberg
Great insight into what being deaf means, in summary I'm no longer a fan of hearing people.
Excellent condition based on delivery. In the book, there are lots of detailed in high educated words used in the book and I believe this book needs to develop simple words for those Deaf people who are in need to learn about Deaf history and culture. But there are some interesting facts in the history that Deaf people in Australia could learn about other Deaf people in other countries. What's more about history when you want to learn the past events in this world and yet there are some things that was never told? It's best to read what you want to know!
