Abstract

As the relationships between the human condition and the disability condition, between disabled persons and the "world's poor," and among disabled persons themselves are examined, a periphery within the surplus population wherein reside the vast majority of disabled persons is revealed. That is to say, as greater degrees of specificity regarding the condition of disability and disabled persons are pursued, a variety of factors, contingencies, histories, and types of impairment that situate disabled persons uniquely at the extreme edge of the poorest and most marginal, as "double outcast," are uncovered.
