Most of the information in the book was interesting. It is a very in-depth look at the beginnings of Deaf education, Deaf culture, and the Deaf community in America. However, I would have appreciated a little bit about contemporary American Deaf culture and community, and how it evolved from the early days. I relied on the in-class discussions and my Deaf instructor's insight to tie all of that together. If you're interested in Deaf culture/community, and want to know the historical reasons why most Deaf are proud and protective of their language and schools, this book is a good read. If you're looking for information specific to contemporary Deaf culture, maybe not the book for you.

Product Description

Creating the Deaf Community in America
Using original sources, this unique text focuses on the American Deaf community during the 19th century. It traces the history of Deaf people in America not from the perspective of pathology, but of culture as the distinguishing characteristic of a distinct community of individuals whose history and achievements are worthy of study. Largely through schools for the Deaf, Deaf people began to develop a common language and a sense of community. A Place of Their Own brings the perspective of history to bear on the reality of deafness and provides fresh and important insights into the lives of Deaf Americans. [John V. VanCleve and Barry A. Crouch; (1989) 212 pages; soft cover]
