This volume offers the authors' insights into the existence and makeup of the Deaf world, the community whose natural language, American Sign Language in the United States, is manual and visual. Bringing the latest social and cultural findings and theories into focus, the authors attempt to explain what Deaf culture is, including discussions about the benefits of signed language and Deaf culture for Deaf children and hearing people; how Deaf children are now educated and how they could be; how Deaf people integrate into the larger society; the nature of American Sign Language; how technology helps (and hurts) Deaf people; what can be learned from Deaf societies in other lands; the future of the Deaf world.
