HANDICARE gets many books on disability for its ‘Resource Centre’ from several countries. The books are rare, as their subject is specific, difficult to obtain in India and usually expensive by Indian standards.
But at the same time, some books are rich in information, others outline the history of the disability movement in the authors’ respective countries and some carry poignant tales of human stories.
