My book Idiocy: A Cultural History just received its first review, by Penny L. Richards, in the Times Higher Education, July 18. And as part of my new policy of shameless self-promotion, you can read it here. Naturally, I’m very pleased with this review – perhaps especially with Richards' observation that Idiocy isn’t a niche history, but pulls together a lot of different concerns. My point was that concepts of idiocy and intellectual disability can’t be taken outside of any given society’s other packages of ideas, notions, trends, economies, policies, and so forth – that they are all part of the same fabric.

OK, that's enough shameless self-promotion for now...
