Explains the difference between the two kinds of “hearing” people – the lay people and the specialists. Lay people are those who do not work in Deaf-related fields and specialists are those who maintain the two key features of colonialism of Deaf peoples: specialism and paternalism.
Also, emphasizes the importance for the lay reader to understand that “virtually all discourses about Deaf people have been conceived, controlled and written by people who were not themselves Deaf.” It’s in the same category of the ethnocentric bias that is involved with the majority of legislation concerning other minority groups.
Points out that Chapter 2 will summarize some of the main patterns in the specialist/paternalist discourses the past 5000 years and across several continents that have greatest relevance to the Deaf communities of the present day.
