Abstract:     
Ruth Colker provides a detailed history of the first ten years of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) based upon a study of federal cases, legislative history, and judicial decision-making. Her examination gives insight into why, despite broad congressional support, initial ADA jurisprudence has fallen short of the envisioned goals of its supporters with the vast majority of case law limiting the breadth and effectiveness of the statute. In addition, Colker gives readers a behind-the-scenes look into the debates and personal stories that paved the way for the statute's enactment in Congress.
