At the forefront of both the global and materialist turns in disability studies, Erevelles provides readers with an indispensable analysis of the ways in which disability in the current world order is constructed in relation to systems of gender, race, class, caste, and sexual orientation. Erevelles calls for a transformative body politic that resists the compulsory subject positions and relations of domination generated by neoliberal, capitalist modes of production.
In and through that call, she remaps, in emancipatory ways, the terrain of disability studies, feminist studies, Marxist theory, postcolonial theory, and education. This book demonstrates the historical production of disability and other social differences as they press upon us today making our bodies, minds, senses matter as the conflicting social scenes that they are.
No one in disability studies, or any of its affiliated fields, should go without reading this book; and no one will rest easy with their current disability knowledge once having read Disability and Difference in Global Context. In language by turns provocative and heartbreaking, Nirmala Erevelles explains and enacts a 'carnal historical materialism': the theoretical yet everyday dance between identity, injury, privilege and hope.

Further, Jarman argues that the connections that the novel draws, though often uneasy and problematic, especially for disability studies scholars, make it an excellent starting point for further consideration of the intersecting narratives of race and mental difference. Drazen's methodological approach as a historian unlike many of the volume's contributors, who are primarily literary and cultural studies scholars provides her with the ability to illustrate the dynamic changes that have occurred in the intertwining relationship between racism and ableism over time as exemplified by the changing treatment of black veterans with disabilities.
As she suggests, these racist systems have developed and changed, ultimately resulting in a contemporary moment in which "the VA hospital system is not trouble-free, but racial discrimination seems no longer to be among its troubles," at least in any institutionalized way Drazen's and Jarman's essays constitute two of the more successful contributions to the volume, but many of the other essays are also engaging and informative, even when they do not manage to explicitly integrate both DS and African American Studies approaches. In particular, many of these essays explore the role that sexuality might have in complicating depictions of race and disability, and the ways that pain is thought of across the color line, two subjects ripe for further exploration.
Though many of the essays in Blackness and Disability could be more explicit in their interrogations of both categories of analysis, including their intersections, this volume is nonetheless a groundbreaking collection of essays that will help DS move towards the kind of racially engaged scholarship that Bell envisioned, serving as a fine first book for what will hopefully be a shelf's worth of monographs and anthologies explicitly about race and disability to come in the next decade.
Finally, I would be remiss if I failed to mention that in the course of this volume's publication, and the subsequent gap between publication and this review, the DS community lost both Chris Bell and Carlos Clarke Drazen.

Though I did not have the pleasure to know either of them personally, I nonetheless feel confident that the best way we can honor them and their work, and perhaps the way they would have liked best, would be to continue the conversations they have helped begin in this volume. Reviewed by Adam P. Newman, Emory University. Introducing Black Disability Studies: A Modest Beginning Chris Bell's posthumously published anthology Blackness and Disability: Critical Examinations and Cultural Interventions is the latest and in some respects the most ambitious contribution to date in the study of race and disability.
