Sterilization of People with Mental Disabilities: Issues, Perspectives, and Cases

By Ellen Brantlinger | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

If I were to adequately acknowledge all of the people who have contributed to this book, the list would be very long. First, it would include the students, family members, and the many professionals that I interviewed. Next, I would have to recognize the contributions of people who attended my workshops and shared stories about their situations with me. Some of these stories are included in the book. Then, it would include the colleagues, support staff, and graduate and undergraduate students at Indiana University with whom I have often discussed topics related to this book. I would have to say a special thanks to the librarians who eased me into new technologies to find the references I researched for the book. There are a few professional colleagues at other universities that I will mention by name. Vivian Correa, Paul Sindelar, and Barbara Ludlow of Teacher Education and Special Education have encouraged my work. Thomas Good, editor of the Elementary School Journal has been generous with his support. James Halle, editor of the Journal of the Association for Persons with Severe Handicaps, not only supported an early publication of my research on sterilization of individuals with mental retardation, but also gave me valuable advice about dealing with the mounds of data I had collected on the subject. I am also appreciative of the patience and editorial support extended by James Sabin, John Harney, Marcia Goldstein, Sherry Goldbecker, and Catherine Lyons of the Greenwood Publishing Group. Last, I am fortunate to have family members and friends who, through their willingness to discuss issues with me, helped me become acquainted with various perspectives on topics. I must thank my mother, Rose Nott Anderson; my sister, Wilda Anderson Obey; my friends, Pam Lohmann and Mamie Merrifield; my children, Andrew, Susan, and Jeremy, and my husband, Patrick Brantlinger for sharing their widsom and their time.
