World Federation of the Deaf: A History by Jack R. Gannon is a comprehensive overview of the first 50 years of the WFD. From its inception as an idea during a chance meeting of friends from Italy, Austria and Yugoslavia in 1949, through its 50th Anniversary in 2001, this book covers it all! Highlights of the quadrennial WFD Congresses, board meetings and the decades as well as quotations taken from Congress proceedings show our changing world views through the issues of the day. Also included are biographies of all WFD award winners, histories of the Deaf associations in each member country of the WFD, and a color section of international stamps recognizing the deaf and disabled communities.
