Northeastern faculty members have written at length on a wide range of topics. Here, we highlight the fourth batch of published works in a feature on recent faculty books.

Distinguished Professor of Psychology Harlan Lane, who founded the ASL program at Northeastern and recently wrote a book about deaf culture and deaf ethnicity in the U.S., addresses the debate between specialized vs. mainstream schools for the deaf.
