About the Book

A unique work that brings together a number of specialist disciplines, such as archaeology, anthropology, disability studies and psychiatry to create a new perspective on social and physical exclusion from society. A range of evidence throws light on such things as the causes and consequences of social exclusion stigma, marginality and dangerousness.

It is an important text that breaks down traditional academic disciplinary boundaries and brings a much needed comparative approach to the subject.
