During the Rubella Syndrome epidemic of the 1960s, many children were born deaf, blind, and mentally disabled. David Goode has devoted his life and career to understanding such people's world, a world without words, but not, the author confirms, one without communication. This book is the result of his studies of two children with congenital deaf-blindness and mental retardation.

A thorough understanding of medical education and careers available in South Africa is offered in this illuminating review. Two key case studies—one exploring the University of Cape Town’s medical school, the other looking at the Walter Sisulu University Medical School—provide insight into the changing curriculum, which emphasizes problem-based learning and the government’s primary healthcare focus. The significant increase in female students and their possible emigration after graduation are also discussed.

As a result, it is not always possible to identify the loci for authority and legitimacy, and the role of governments has been called into question.
