New Book on Disability in Modern China

I just finished reading Matthew Kohrman's new book Bodies of Difference: Experiences of Disability and Institutional Advocacy in Modern China. Kohrman, a Stanford Anthropology professor, has written a book that is way too jargon-heavy, but if you dig through the verbiage you will learn lots of interesting facts and analysis about the response to disability by mainland China's government and society in the post-Cultural Revolution era. It's certainly not an easy read, but I'd recommend it to those who are interested in understanding more about disability policy in non-western nations.
