"Lou Brown (1939 - 2021) was a Professor at the University of Wisconsin, in the United States of America, having achieved great recognition, nationally and internationally, as a pioneer in the fields of school and social inclusion of People with Disabilities (...) His reputation came from his activity as a teacher, but especially from the intervention in the field, promoting school and professional inclusion of people with disabilities, always assuming that this is an essential element for the construction of a fairer society, and an unavoidable condition to provide a dignified life for people. (...) The texts we have gathered in this collection bring us the essential of Professor Lou Brown's thinking in this field - however, in them we will not find very elaborate theoretical expositions, but rather the way he applied a body of principles to his practice. "[excerpt from the Foreword, signed by Mário Pereira].
