    When I sat down this morning to write my review of this book, it quickly got so unwieldy that I decided to just spin it off into a standalone essay for the general public at my blog I strongly encourage you to go read that, if you want to knowabout what this book is about and why it s so important to learn, if you re to understand anything about the modern Deaf community as it exists in the late 2010s As far as the book itself, it s serviceable but no great shakes, the last few chapters When I sat down this morning to write my review of this book, it quickly got so unwieldy that I decided to just spin it off into a standalone essay for the general public at my blog I strongly encourage you to go read that, if you want to knowabout what this book is about and why it s so important to learn, if you re to understand anything about the modern Deaf community as it exists in the late 2010s As far as the book itself, it s serviceable but no great shakes, the last few chapters in particular written in a graduate school term paper style that make them a challenge to non academic readers like me But I m giving the book a good score anyway, simply because it covers a subject so critically important to Deaf history, and does it in a muchthorough and enlightening way than any other book does, literally a sometimes hour by hour breakdown of this so momentous week back in 1988 It comes recommended in this specific spirit, not because it s particularly well written but because its subject matter is so important

    A fascinating and informative description and analysis of a significant historical protest for Deaf self actualization I m not giving it five stars because I would have liked to see analysis of how race, class, and gender impacted the protests, which appear to have been largely led by white men, quite unusually for protests However, I learned a lot, and it definitely provides food for thought regarding how to organize successful protests.

    Honestly, I didn t finish this book I read all the chapters that directly described the protest then stopped There s a ton of analysis that makes up the last third that I ll probably never read The first seventy percent or so, though, has been super super helpful as I work on my senior writing project.
