Sinopsis:

This unprecedented collection of essays from distinguished and respected scholars marks the turning point in the education of the deaf. Headlined with compositions and documents written by the late Dr. Larry G. Stewart and Prof. Frances M. Parsons, both once members of the faculty of Gallaudet University, the book opens the door for new thinking. With additional contributions from Dr. Otto J. Menzel, Dr. Donald F. Moores, Dr. Truman W. Stelle, and PhD student Patrick W. Seamans, all of these writers venture into the heart of deaf language and cultural issues and reward us with the kind of critical thinking largely absent from many proponents of ASL-based learning. This book will be indispensable reading for educators, administrators, parents and students, and essential for elected officials and taxpaying citizens.

Review:

. . . In a unique and remarkable collection of wise and moderate voices he unmasks the politics and the mythology of ASL and yet shows respect for ASL itself. How can we thank Tom Bertling save in constant hoping that his work will be widely read and provide a moderating influence in developing educational programs geared to the needs of the individual deaf child. -- Arnold B. Adelman, Director, Speech and Hearing Foundation of Massachusetts, Inc.

. . . In this collection of essays written by respected deaf scholars who place themselves squarely in front of the steamroller of ASL radicalism, Bertling focuses light and reason upon the internal inconsistencies, absence of scholarship, and conflict of interest of leaders of the Deaf-World. . . . provide(s) an important background for anyone interested in a balanced view of the current atmosphere of academic repression, especially at Gallaudet University. -- Thomas J. Balkany, MD, FACS, FAAP, Hotchkiss Distinguished Professor and Vice Chairman, Otolaryngology, University of Miami

Hopefully, this collection of illuminating essays by well-known and established scholars will send a "wake-up call" to the guardians of education -- teachers and administrators -- in our schools and programs for deaf learners. -- Dr. Robert F. Panara, Professor Emeritus, NTID, Rochester Institute of Technology

Tom Bertling has done an excellent job of compiling the ignored and almost forgotten message that deaf individuals must learn to read and write English fluently, for successful careers in our modern, information-based society. -- Paulette R. Caswell, M.S.-TESL, J.D., PhD Prgm, Int'l-Intercultural Studies, University of Southern California

Tom Bertling's "American Sign Language: Shattering the Myth" sounds an alarm to all parents and teachers of deaf children on the predicament in which American education of the deaf finds itself. . . . -- Ed. Scouten, Distinguished Educator of the Deaf, Gallaudet University, NTID
