520    Although passed into law with high expectations, the 
       Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has mostly failed in
       enabling those with mental disabilities to fight 
       discrimination in the workplace. In Hollow Promises, Susan
       Stefan explores the reasons for this failure and points to
       how the courts, government, and employers may finally make
       good on the ADA's seemingly hollow promises of rights. 
       Those with mental disabilities, like most people, want to 
       work to support themselves and find respect and personal 
       fulfillment. But because of engrained prejudices against 
       those with a record of disability, obtaining and holding a
       job can be an epic task. This book witnesses the 
       difficulties that people with mental disabilities may have
       in finding and keeping employment and describes how the 
       ADA has affected this problem. Filled with detailed 
       descriptions of employment cases and sharp analysis of the
       law, this provocative book is essential reading for 
       lawyers, employers, therapists, people with mental 
       disabilities, and all those seeking just employment 
       practice. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all
