This chapter reviews the analysis of culture and its relationship to society, the economy, and politics, and outlines the representation of disability in mainstream culture. It then explores the generation of disability cultures and examines the development of the disability arts movement and its implications for disability culture. These issues are illustrated with examples from both U.K. and U.S. cultures
