This book presents the contemporary narratives and texts of autism. The majority of the analysis focuses on stories, accounts and versions that create an idea of autism. It argues that autism is in some way a condition that has acquired a particular and specific emphasis, and indeed popularity, in the very contemporary period. Autism is a condition with a strong physical component. This book is necessarily a part of the ‘autism debate’ and cannot be seen to stand outside it. Finally, an overview of the chapters included in this book is offered.

Keywords:   autism, contemporary narratives, contemporary period, stories, accounts
