Stigma by Erving Goffman

Masterly account of people who are different in society, written in the 50's this book is still supremely relevant.
American Sociologist Erving Goffman deals with the social position of the disabled as being discredited, being outsiders, their defence mechanisms and the reactions of others to them.
At times depressing but one of the few great works of disability thinking, highly recommened
rating 10/10
