For anyone that is studying to be an Interpreter, Teacher of the Deaf, et. or has a Deaf family member, this book is a necessity. There was so much infomation, personal interviews and stories about all aspects. Arden Neisser went everywhere and talked to everyone. This book was very rich in text and left little to be discovered.

In widely varying encounters, Neisser heard Deaf individuals recall how teachers suppressed the use of ASL in the school, how linguists fostered conflicting theories, and how various institutions diluted ASL to suit hearing patrons

America’s Deaf and hard-of-hearing community is large and generally . Only gifted children succeeded in an education without signs or books. New York: Knopf, 1983.

America’s Deaf and hard-of-hearing community is large and generally unified and very proud, which must be noted to understand the bigger picture. Most Deaf, if given the opportunity, would not accept a cure (Solomon, 1994), predictably to the surprise of many people.

Neisser traveled from California to Vermont, observing, interviewing, checking out libraries and resource centers. Often her impressionistic reporting is revealing. "Few professionals in the worm of the deaf have ever thought seriously about deafness,"" she charges at the start. "They think only about hearing. But throughout her book she introduces many who consider deafness and its complexities quite thoroughly.

Examines the use of sign language by the deaf and discusses the education and social conditions of deaf people in the United States

The other side of silence is a well written and researched book. It seems that now-a-days books about the Deaf and the Deaf community fall into either the oralist or manualist camp, with very little falling in the center. As a sign language interpreter I am biased (of course) towards the manualist view, and generally dismiss oralist themed books out of hand. However, I was pleased and fascinated to read a thoughtful and unbiased exploration of both sides of the age old argument.

For anyone that is studying to be an Interpreter, Teacher of the Deaf, etc., or has a Deaf family member, this book is a necessity. All areas pertaining to American Sign Language and the Deaf community were thoroughly explored and thoughtfully portrayed. There was so much infomation, personal interviews and stories about all aspects. Arden Neisser went everywhere and talked to everyone. This book was very rich in text and left little to be discovered. Nothing was missing! An invaluable source that will leave a tremendous impact on its readers.

Wow, what an insightful read. This author Arden Neisser really put down the intelligence and
deep insight it requires to understand deaf individuals.
I have worked with deaf for almost 20 years (had deaf grandparents) and this
was a book I overlooked and was sorry I didn't read it sooner.
Should be required reading for ALL Interpreter Training Programs ;-O, or anyone wanted to understand
and relate to deaf people.
Thank You.
