For the Benefit of Those Who See: Dispatches from the World of the Blind Rosemary Mahoney










Mahoney does a good job describing how the blind have been treated in the past (as lazy, conduits for the devil, horrible members of society-pretty much anything negative you could think of)Back Arts Business Comedy Education Games & Hobbies Government & Organizations Health Kids & Family Music News & Politics Religion & Spirituality Science & Medicine Society & Culture Sports & Recreation Technology TV & Film It also relates how much blind people use their other senses to navigate the world, senses those with sight simply do not use or use very little, including touch and smellStopping at well known figures such as Helen Keller, she is able to make us face our own treatment of those with handicapsApply Now - opens in a new window or tab See terms - opens in a new window or tab See payment details Any international shipping and import charges are paid in part to Pitney Bowes IncThey have all been terribly discriminated against in their own countries, deprived of an education and treated as if they were capable of nothingOften, it's not prettySubject to credit approvalI'm often reminded of the book Day of the Triffids where an alien plant blinds humanity, making them vulnerable to invasion

This actually made me skip the middle third of the bookyou know what I mean.JackassShe said, "I don't." A person's face was not, for herDon't pity the blind.Mahoney gives a quote in the book, which I appreciated: "It is more difficult to teach the ignorant to think than it is to teach an intelligent blind man to see the grandeur of Niagara Falls." - Helen Keller (pgI only rate it three stars because Mahoney's writing tends to be stodgy, and there are no photos or other illustrationsI was not aware that there was so much prejudice and discrimination against blind people, worldwide and far back into history 9233bc153f
