520    "Since first being identified as a distinct psychiatric 
       disorder in 1943, autism has been steeped in contestation 
       and controversy. Present-day skirmishes over the potential
       causes of autism, how or even if it should be treated, and
       the place of Asperger's syndrome on the autism spectrum 
       are the subjects of intense debate in the research 
       community, in the media, and among those with autism and 
       their families. Bringing together innovative work on 
       autism by international scholars in the social sciences 
       and humanities, Worlds of Autism boldly challenges the 
       deficit narrative prevalent in both popular and scientific
       accounts of autism spectrum disorders, instead situating 
       autism within an abilities framework that respects the 
       complex personhood of individuals with autism. A major 
       contribution to the emerging, interdisciplinary field of 
       critical autism studies, this book is methodologically and
       conceptually broad. Its authors explore the philosophical 
       questions raised by autism, such as how it complicates 
       neurotypical understandings of personhood; grapple with 
       the politics that inform autism research, treatment, and 
       care; investigate the diagnosis of autism and the 
       recognition of difference; and assess representations of 
       autism and stories told by and about those with autism. 
       From empathy, social circles, and Internet communities to 
       biopolitics, genetics, and diagnoses, Worlds of Autism 
       features a range of perspectives on autistic 
       subjectivities and the politics of cognitive difference, 
       confronting society's assumptions about those with autism 
       and the characterization of autism as a disability.
