Presenting a cartographic journey into the world of the production(s) of disability, this book examines embodiment, transhumanism, subjectivity, technology and jurisprudence. It concerns matters of order/disorder and the normal and pathological, and explores the way stories about wholeness, health, enhancement and perfection are told.
