"JB Munro led the IHC for two decades in an era of a growing disability rights movement, the closure of institutions and calls for self-advocacy and citizenship by people with intellectual of learning disability... after stepping down from that role 21 years later he continued his work with Inclusion International. His busy retirement continued a focus on community." - BOOK JACKET
