The contemporary maker movement seeks to democratize the means of technological production, but often promotes a very narrow view of who counts as a maker. My book traces maker practices in marginalized communities of disabled people from the mid-twentieth century to the present and shows that people without formal access to science and technology education were not only inventing important technologies but also building a social movement around these practices. Hamraie concludes that the contemporary disability rights movement is a result of these earlier maker movements.
