"The author provides unprecedented critical, interdisciplinary explorations of the complex dynamics and intersectionalities operating between disability and poverty in rural areas, an assumed relationship that is too often misunderstood. Reporting on long term ethnographic work in Guatemala and prioritising the voices, knowledge and narratives of disabled people and their families, Grech offers an incisive and refined critical analysis of the various complex barriers and interactions in the disability/poverty/rurality nexus encountered by what Grech calls 'disabled families'. The book opens up discussions on a broad range of themes traversing conceptual, spatial, historical, embodied, spiritual, racial, sexual and gendered terrains among others. It challenges and reframes established, often imposed discourses and practices, and contests issues of (re)presentation, Eurocentrism, and coloniality. Finally, it contributes new and uncharted reflections for further debate, which are indispensable to the emerging disability and development/global South discourse, research and practice"--
