View Author Bio
Schein, Jerome D. : New York University / University of Alberta
Jerome D. Schein is Professor Emeritus of Sensory Rehabilitation at New York University, and Adjunct Professor of Education at the University of Alberta.
''A good overview of the Deaf experience and a timely acquisition for libraries.''
''Authoritative and highly readable.''
--Oliver Sacks, M.D., Author, Seeing Voices
''Schein ably demonstrates both the frustrations of deafness in a hearing world and the comfort, warmth and sense of identity the deaf find among each other. This volume should expand scholars' understanding of deaf people and their interactions with hearing communities.''
