A behind-the-scenes look at the complex array of factors and forces that led to the passage of one of the most important pieces of federal educational legislation in the last 50 years, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act of 1975 – now known as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Ed Martin’s book adds to the historical record and is a powerful and inspirational reminder to policy makers, advocates, and practitioners in the present why special education is a necessary and noble profession.
