Abstract

In Madness, Distress and the Politics of Disablement, editors Helen Spandler, Jill Anderson and Bob Sapey bring together contributors to explore the challenges of applying theories and policies of disability to understandings of madness and distress. With a number of essays drawing on close engagement with lived experience, this is a rewarding and frequently compelling read that does not shy away from grappling with the uncertainties surrounding its field of inquiry, finds Peter Barham.
