In the late twentieth century people with disabilities continue to be segregated in many ways from full participation in society, if no longer in physical space then at least in social and cultural space. There is wide agreement that this is something that needs change, and that people ought to be enabled to participate in their communities. In pursuing such change, however, it is important to recognize difference. People need opportunities to participate in ways that enable them to live authentic lives as persons with disabilities. Hence the two key-terms in the title of this collection of essays: community and authenticity.
