Fine. UNUSED, VERY GOOD, NOT EX-LIBRARY, (Biography & Autobiography Politics Problems of the Wheelchairbound Ireland), 185 pages. This is the testament of a fighter, a contentious, exuberant and heroic personality whose personal crusade was to bring the rights of the disabled to the forefront of public consciousness and to improve their lot by legislation rather than by charity or humanitarian activities. Liam Maguire was disabled after suffering spinal injuries in a motorcycle accident. He was nineteen. Thereafter he campaigned indefatigably as a trade unionist, socialist, political activist and member of international organisations for the disabled. His tragically early death robbed his colleagues and his country of their only rebel on wheels. This biography, based on the reminiscences of those who knew Liam Maguire and on his own spoken and written words, is an inspiring study of one man's heroism and a reminder of all that remains to be done to give equal rights to the disabled.
