Questions of Competence:. This collection argues for a new conceptualisation of intellectual disability which stresses its cultural variability and social construction, and de-emphasises its medicalised, physiological nature. It is aimed at disability specialists in social anthropology, sociology, social policy, and psychology, and at the broader health/medical anthropology market. It is novel and radical in its treatment of intellectual disability not purely as an inherent property of individuals, but also as social phenomenon.

Intellectual disability - ranging from what is more commonly described as 'mental retardation' to 'learning difficulties' - is a socially constructed phenomenon that varies in important respects cross-culturally. The contributors, anthropologists and sociologists, argue that it is time for a new understanding of intellectual disability.
