Garland (classics, Colgate U., New York) offers an initial foray of disability studies into the classical world, leaving for later studies such dimensions as mental incapacity, age as a cause of increasing disablement, changes in attitudes over time, and a comparison between Greek and Roman attitudes. His chapters include survival of the weakest, the Roman emperor in his monstrous world, the physiognomic consciousness, medical diagnosis and treatment, and racial deformity. The first edition was published in 1995; this second provides an additional preface, and has apparently been corrected but not revised substantially.
